A 1-0 defeat to Everton extinguished any hope of Manchester United qualifying for the Champions League next season. This is an unforgivable shame, especially given the premium quality of players stacked in the team.

Admittedly, Manchester United need a quality coach to push the team back to glory. The world’s most renowned bookmakers on have Erik Ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino as leading candidates to succeed Ralf Ragnick.

But aside from high-quality quality, the Man United squad needs an urgent revamp. We compiled a collection of players who need to leave and those who need to come in for Man United to challenge for trophies again.

Players To Leave

Juan Mata

The £ 37.1 million signing from Chelsea was an integral part of the team in his early days at Manchester United, and he has scored 34 goals in total for the team.

He is currently judged surplus to needs, and his appearances for Man United have quickly diminished as the years passed.

With his age against him at 33 and a contract expiring in June, it’s easy to see why Man United should sell him, especially as the club strives to resurrect its glory days using the younger generation.

Eric Bailly

Since joining Manchester United in 2016, Bailly’s form has been erratic, primarily due to injury, with only a few flashes of brilliance.

Some may say that he has only been given limited opportunities to perform. However, one contributing factor is that Bailly is prone to making mistakes, frequently scoring their own goals, or receiving unwarranted yellow cards.

Nevertheless, at 27 years, he still has time to prove his worth, but it will not be with Manchester United. It’s logical to send him to a squad where he’ll be helpful.

Dean Henderson

From uncertainty to COVID-19 sickness, the English shot-stopper has been a victim of fate. Henderson has been loaned out to several clubs and has reasonably delivered at those clubs.

When he was on loan at Sheffield United, his abilities were more apparent, and people expected that other clubs would come knocking. However, Manchester United deemed it prudent to keep him at the club.

With first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea showing no signs of slowing down, this move has left him with no possibility of improving his ability.

He is the best fit for a first-choice goalkeeper; therefore, the club must sell him to where he is needed.

Players To Buy

Victor Osimhen

Manchester United currently lacks depth in the striking department. The strikers are inconsistent; some are let down by age, and others are out of form.

This role requires re-energizing, and who better to achieve it than the young Nigerian?

This season, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has been in outstanding form. His undaunted strength and pacy runs behind the opposing defence give him the upper hand in every game.

In addition, he has recently demonstrated brilliance with his head, heading home those swinging crosses.

Napoli highly regards the 23-year-old, and they are unlikely to trade him for less than £100 million. His abilities, however, equal that value, and if he moves to Manchester United, he will undoubtedly score those much-needed goals.

Declan Rice

Declan Rice has constantly improved his game since getting into West Ham’s first team.

Rice is a versatile player who can play either as a central defender or defensive midfielder. He is better known for regaining possession of the ball and cutting off an opponent’s advance.

Manchester United is currently in need of a player who can hold up play and make crucial interceptions. Declan Rice’s qualifications make him an ideal fit.

West Ham may hesitate to let the talisman go as they fight for a place in the Champions League. However, given Manchester United’s financial strength, a sizable bid for the youngster may be too enticing to turn down.

Youri Tielemanns

Youri Tielemanns is a viable successor for Paul Pogba, whose future at Manchester United is uncertain.

The Belgian is a box-to-box midfielder with an eye for goal always. He can hold up play and shoot those goal-bound shots when necessary.

Besides, he has a knack for making those killer passes, always finding a way to connect with the strikers upfront.

Tielemanns contract with Leicester ends in 2023. As a result, a good bargain should see him switch sides with Manchester United.


Manchester United’s performances have remained unstable since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, breaking hearts when least expected.

They have gone without trophies in many seasons, their last coming in the Europa League in 2017.

Despite the return of their star player, Ronaldo, their fortunes do not appear to have improved. Regardless, the remedy is a revamp. Some players must depart, while newcomers welcomed into the fold.

Signing the subjects of interest in this article is probable, and success is not out of the question if they do.
