Mourinho To Axe Eight United Stars

Posted: Jul 12, 2016 at 6:35 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

Jose Mourinho will cut his squad down to 22 members once he has completed his summer transfer business and up to eight stars are facing the chop.
The 53-year-old has made three signings so far this summer, with Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic arriving at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese boss is determined to sign Juventus ace Paul Pogba this summer and the club are willing to break the world transfer record to re-sign the Frenchman.
However, Pogba’s arrival would come at a price for other members of Mourinho’s squad and the Sun claim he will axe up to eight current United stars.
The likes of Daley Blind, Juan Mata and Bastian Schweinsteiger could all face the chop, while there are doubts over Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and Marcos Rojo.
Youngsters Guillermo Varela and Tyler Blackett are also expected to make way.
