Manchester United Are Looking To Let Six First-Team Players Leave In January
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to let six first-team players leave in the January transfer window.
United are level on points at the top of the Premier League with Liverpool and they're willing to spend if a target becomes available.
The Sun report Solskjaer will speak to Sergio Romero, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Brandon Williams, Daniel James and Jesse Lingard about their futures.
Romero has slipped down the pecking order after Dean Henderson's return and nearly moved in the summer.
Jones and Rojo haven't played a game this season and have suffered a number of injury problems over the years.
West Bromwich Albion are said to be interested in Jones while Rojo is on Newcastle United's radar.
Elsewhere in defence, young full-back Williams is set to go out on loan with Southampton and German outfit Bayer Leverkusen interested.
In attack, Lingard and James have seen their game time limited this season and the imminent arrival of Amad Diallo won't change that.

Diallo signed from Atalanta in the summer but stayed with the Serie A side until this month.
They did want to keep him for the remainder of the season but United and Diallo himself were keen on him moving now.
"Amad, we've had all the paperwork, I can't see any obstacles," Solskjaer said after United's 2-1 win over Aston Villa per Goal.
"Hope very soon he will be with us. Very excited to have him in. He'll need time to develop."
The Ivory Coast-born prospect has only played a handful of games, but did make Champions League debut in December, coming off the bench against Midtjylland.
His versatility and trickery will be key attributes in standing out at Old Trafford.
Atalanta captain Papu Gomez paid him the highest compliment, saying: "He's a future star, trust me.
"During our training, he seems like [Lionel] Messi! You can't stop him."
