Manchester United Open To Transfer Offers For Four Players
Manchester United are reportedly open to letting four first team players leave this January.
According to The Athletic, the Red Devils are willing to listen to offers for Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, and Jesse Lingard.
The group have been almost entirely absent from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season, with only Lingard making two appearances in the League Cup.
As a result, getting their wages off the books would likely help the club to bring in players who can make more of an impact in the first team.
Of the four, Romero, and Rojo could both leave Old Trafford for free in the summer, and this may be the last chance for United to get a return on their players. They recently triggered a one-year extension on Lingard's contract - possibly looking for a bigger transfer fee for the England international.

Romero was close to a move to Everton in the summer, but in the end Man Utd decided against selling as they didn't want to strengthen a rival - also reported by The Athletic.
United have been doing well enough without them, with their 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Friday moving them on to equal points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

Yet another Bruno Fernandes penalty was enough to get past the Villans, although there have been some complaints about the spot kick being given - with Villa's Douglas Luiz particularly annoyed that he was seemingly penalised for Paul Pogba tripping over himself.
However, better squad depth may be needed, as shown when they were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages earlier in the campaign.
