160 billion won urgently needed.. Manchester United, 13 players “please buy”
Manchester United are planning to sell 13 players to secure transfer funds.
The British media ‘Mirror’메이저놀이터 reported on the 17th (Korean time) that ‘Man Utd coach Eric Tenhagh is trying to sell 13 star players for £100 million (about 160 billion won) to increase the transfer budget’.
“Tenhach is expected to continue reshuffling the squad this summer,” the mirror said. He is scheduled to break up with up to 13 people. Five of them are Phil Jones, who has been with the club for a long time, and Axel Tuanzeb, who is from the academy,’ he explained.
100 million pounds is the level of Harry Kane’s (Tottenham Hotspur) transfer fee. It is known that Manchester United took Kane as their number one target in this transfer window.
Manchester United is currently in the process of selling. It is a two-way match between Qatari capital Sheikh Jasim and British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe. However, it is still unclear who will be the owner. If this continues, there is a high probability that the owner will not be confirmed even if the transfer market opens, which means that the funding line may not be smooth.

‘Both Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly don’t see a future at Manchester United,’ the Mirror said. Maguire is an England international. If Maguire is sold, he could acquire a significant transfer fee. Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka also analyzed that if there is a team he wants, he can collect the transfer fee.
United could even sell youngster Anthony Elanga. Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Brandon Williams and Alex Telles also appear to have been left out of Tenhag’s plans.
Mirror said, ‘All of the above players have several years left on their contracts. You can reinvest the transfer fee from selling them. Recruiting a new striker to lead the attack with Marcus Rashford will be a priority.’
Manchester United have embarked on a major rebuild this season by appointing former Ajax manager Tenhach. Tenhach succeeded in improving his constitution by boldly sending Cristiano Ronaldo to the bench. His leadership was recognized by winning the League Cup trophy in his first season in charge. In the coming summer, the change is expected to accelerate further with a team that suits Tenhah’s taste.
