The Manchester United playing squad is in the middle of a major overhaul under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Credit where it’s due, the Baby Faced Assassin made some major transfer moves over the summer – most of which have worked out nicely. However, the work is nowhere near complete and further big decisions lie ahead.

Amongst those players who could be on the way out is Ashley Young. Just a couple of days ago, we covered a story from ESPN in which it was claimed that the Englishman expects to leave Old Trafford next summer.

Well, United’s longest-serving player could be out sooner than that, if a story from the Daily Mail is accurate. They’re claiming that United could let the versatile veteran leave in January after Young has fallen down the pecking order.

The now 34-year-old was a key member of the starting line-up last term, but has fallen in behind both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams over the last few months. Now, Young could possibly depart in the mid-season window instead.

For what it’s worth, Young has been a sublime servant to this club and honestly, we should let him see out his contract and walk away with his head held high – unless he wants to leave in January, of course…

The article from the Daily Mail also states that Nemanja Matic is still looking to leave, while the Reds are ‘hopeful’ of signing a defensive midfielder next month, as well as striking a deal for Erling Haaland. Apparently, the club will also look to sign a goalscoring midfielder next summer.
