Three Man Utd stars expected to be sold in January as Solskjaer plans shake-up

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to offload outcasts Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones in the January transfer window.

All three players have fallen out of favour at Old Trafford, with Rojo failing to make an appearance for United since their 3-1 win over Brighton in November 2019.

Jones has also been discarded by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, featuring just three times for the Red Devils in 2020 and last lining up in their 6-0 FA Cup fourth round victory away at Tranmere on January 26.

Backup goalkeeper Romero was an important part of Solskjaer’s squad last season, racking up 17 appearances and playing a key role in their run to the FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals.

However, the Argentine is yet to feature for United this term and has dropped down the pecking order following Dean Henderson’s return from a successful loan spell at Sheffield United.

According to Manchester Evening News, Red Devils chiefs are willing to cash in on the forgotten trio when the transfer window reopens in January.

It will be their last chance to do so in the case of Romero and Rojo, who are both out of contract at Old Trafford next summer.

Jones, on the other hand, only put pen to paper on a new four-and-a-half-year contract back in February 2019.

The latter has been linked with a move to Burnley in recent weeks, with Sean Dyche keen to strengthen his squad after failing to earn a win in their opening seven games of the new campaign.

Romero looked likely to leave United in the previous summer and autumn market, only for a potential move to Everton to break down late on in the window.

The 33-year-old’s wife, Eliana Guercio, hit out at United on Instagram when her husband’s switch to Goodison Park fell through.

She wrote: “Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him.
