3 players Manchester United should offload before the transfer window closes


#2 Matteo Darmian

It is baffling to still witness Matteo Darmian around United after watching the Italian full-back being linked with a move back to his homeland in every transfer window. The 29-year-old's career never peaked at Old Trafford, making just 60 Premier League appearances in his four-year stay in England.

Man United have made heavy investments for the right back spots of late, having signed Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the recent summer transfer windows. Despite the departure of Antonio Valencia, Darmian seems to be pushed down the pecking order post arrival of Crystal Palace prospect Wan-Bissaka.

This summer could finally be the one where Darmian is released off his shackles at United, with Inter Milan, Valencia, and Juventus supposedly sniffing around for his services.

#1 Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku made a fantastic start to life in Manchester, scoring 26 goals in his debut campaign. His form took a steep decrease last season where he managed just 15. In addition to his loss of form, the former Everton man lacked sharpness in his game, eventually losing his spot to Marcus Rashford.

His name might come as a huge surprise for some but allowing the Belgian to leave Man United summer could prove to be a win-win situation for both parties. With Solskjaer's affinity towards more mobile attackers, Lukaku's static presence around the opposition box might restrict him to fewer appearances next season provided he stays.

The 26-year-old probably has his heart set at Inter Milan, and there is no point retaining an unsettled player at the club. United are set to gain a substantial amount of money should Lukaku's transfer materialize, which could also fuel the transfer of a striker.
