Man Utd 'could release seven players this summer' including star who has played 317 times for the club

Man Utd 'could release seven players this summer' including star who has played 317 times for the club

Manchester United are planning quite the clear-out at Old Trafford as the Sir Jim Ratcliffe revolution continues.

Manchester United could release as many as seven players in the summer as part of a major clear-out, according to reports.

It's set to be a huge summer overhaul at United following on from Sir Jim Ratcliffe purchasing a 25 per cent stake in the club.

The INEOS chief has wasted no time in putting his stamp on the club, with Omar Berrada joining as chief executive from rivals Manchester City and Jason Wilcox and Dan Ashworth set to take up important roles in the major restructuring.

Yet there are also many changes anticipated with the squad, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.

Central defenders Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans are both of out contract and are expected to move on.

The former has been plagued by injuries and United refused to trigger a contract option on the Frenchman.

Evans has deputised well and played more games than he could have imagined upon his return but he is now 36.

Third choice-keeper Tom Heaton, having signed a one-year extension in the summer, is also set to go on a free, along with Brandon Williams - currently on loan at Ipswich Town.

The academy product hasn't played for the Championship outfit in 2024 and recently had to appear in court after being accused of inhaling laughing gas before crashing at 74mph.

Anthony Martial, with 317 United appearances to his name, is one of the most high-profile mooted departures.

The Frenchman is once again injured and is out of contract in the summer. The latest update states that there are no plans to offer him fresh terms.

Sofyan Amrabat has been underwhelming in his loan stint from Fiorentina, where he will head back after United elected not to activate their option to buy him outright.

Finally youngster Omari Forson is another whose deal is nearing expiration.

He earned a surprise start in the defeat to Fulham but has played just eight minutes since and does not look likely to receive a contract proposal.
