MANCHESTER UNITED have been uncharacteristically quiet in this transfer window, with Donny van de Beek still their only major acquisition.

But heading into Monday's deadline, there is expected to be movement in and out of Old Trafford.

Club chiefs are still doggedly pursuing Jadon Sancho, having most recently had a £91million bid rejected by bemused Borussia Dortmund bosses.

But to raise enough funds to match the Germans' £108m valuation of the England star, United will have to find suitors for some of their fringe players.

And Ladbrokes think that FIVE Red Devils stars are odds-on to leave the club in the next four days.

Chris Smalling, once a stalwart of the United defence, has been training alone at Carrington this summer.

 The England international enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at Roma last season.

And Paulo Fonseca's side are determined to bring him back to the capital for the 2020-21 campaign.

Alternatively, the 30-year-old could end up at Inter Milan, with Antonio Conte interested.


Like Smalling, Marcos Rojo has also been training alone at Carrington as the club try to move him on.

The Argentine spent the second half of last season on loan at Estudiantes.

Injuries and the coronavirus pandemic limited him to just one appearance, however.

Lazio, who have just signed Andreas Pereira on loan from United, were rumoured to be keen on Rojo, 30, earlier this summer – but the Red Devils are currently struggling to find a suitor.


Ever the reliable back-up for United, some fans may have even wanted to see Sergio Romero step in for the blundering David de Gea at times last season.

But following Dean Henderson's return from Sheffield United, the Argentine international has been relegated to third choice at Old Trafford.

The 33-year-old is likely to demand a move away from United, in order to rise up the pecking order somewhere else.

And Everton have been linked with the ex-Monaco stopper in recent weeks.


Injury-plagued Phil Jones is another to have fallen way down the pecking order at Manchester United.

The 28-year-old managed just eight appearances in all competitions last season, with only two coming in the Premier League.

With Jones still possessing another three years on his contract, United know that he could be difficult to shift.

But Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is reportedly keen on the former England star.

JUAN MATA – 10/11

Juan Mata remains gloriously easy on the eye when he gets on the pitch for Manchester United these days, even at 32.

And the Spaniard even skippered the Red Devils as he scored in the 3-0 League Cup win over Brighton this week.

But Mata has failed to even make the substitutes' bench in the Premier League so far this campaign.

And United could potentially ship him off before Monday's deadline if they can find the right suitor.
