Manchester United's coach Ralf Rangnick is reported to be looking to get rid of three dressing room trouble makers at the club.

With the January transfer window more than half way through, it is expected that United will look to trim their squad ahead of preparing for a big summer window this year.

Jesse Lingard will most likely be United's first sales target in order to gain some monetary benefit instead of losing him for nothing six months down the line.

Apart from Lingard, there are many other players that are facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford.

German outlet Bild claim that Rangnick is looking to get rid of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani because these three players have too much influence in the dressing room and are 'killing the mood' in the camp. 

Cavani has been a stop-start for United this season after signing a year's contract extension last summer. He is said to be keen for regular first team football instead of seeing off his contract that expires in the summer.

Pogba, meanwhile, also reportedly wants a move but United are hopefully to convince him of extending his stay at Old Trafford.

Martial has already expressed his desire to leave United according to Rangnick and has started to refuse from playing games for the club.

In retaliation to Rangnick's comments, the Frenchman took to Instagram and annoucned, "I will never refuse to play a match for Man United. I've been here for seven years and I never disrespected and never will disrespect the club and the fans."

But, Rangnick, who is known to be pretty direct in his approach reverted to Martial's comment by stating, "I said all that needs to be said about that after the game. I nominated him before the game and he was not part of the group. You can draw your own conclusions out of that.

"I had a conversation with him on Sunday about all this and, from my perspective, everything has been spoken about, everything resolved, and no need to add anything on top of that."
