Five Man United players Mourinho needs to sell in January

Manchester United may have spent the most of any Premier League club during the summer but Jose Mourinho’s squad is far from complete.

Indeed, the Red Devils entered the weekend at sixth place in the league table and appear to be little more than a sideshow in this season’s Premier League title race.

Mourinho reportedly believes it will take at least two more transfer windows to transform the squad he inherited from Louis van Gaal, which missed out on Champions League qualification last season.

That suggests the Portuguese already has a number of expensive additions, of similar stature and price to world-record signing Paul Pogba, in mind as he looks to restore the club’s former glories.

But before Mourinho gets to the point where he can make further glamorous signings, he must trim the fat at Old Trafford first.

And there’s no better time to start than in the January transfer window – so here’s a rundown of FIVE players Mourinho should look to axe in the new year.
