Manchester United could reportedly be offloading a number of first-team players this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to revamp his squad. The Red Devils finally appointed a Director of Football last week, bringing John Murtough, and named former star Darren Fletcher as their first technical director.

Now, according to reports, the club might be willing to part ways with Edinson Cavani, David De Gea, and Anthony Martial when the transfer window opens, with Solskjaer looking to bring in fresh faces. Cavani was signed on deadline day last summer and was handed a one-year contract with the option of extending his deal by a year, but the United boss has reportedly decided against handing the Uruguyan an extension.

De Gea's future has been up in the air for a long time, with Dean Henderson looking to establish himself as United's No 1 goalkeeper. The reports also state that a decision will be made on Martial's future, after the Frenchman failed to impress this season in front of goal.

Nemanja Matic could reportedly also be allowed to leave with Scott McTominay a focal point in Solskjaer's midfield. United are still interested in bringing Erling Haaland to Old Trafford, although, reports yesterday claimed that Manchester City were leading to sign the Borussia Dortmund forward.

Harry Maguire has also expressed his desire to work alongside an "English-speaking" center-back, which means United and Solskjaer definitely have their work cut out for them this summer.
