Players like Juan Mata,Paul Pogba ,Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard are expected to leave the club as their contracts are expiring this summer.Contracted players seen as liabilities by the club are also expected to be put on the market with several incomings expected.

Some of the positions mooted to be strengthened are the defence,midfield and a striking department that depended largely on the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo.Players linked include Barcelona Frankie De Jong,Ajac Jurrien Timber,Benfica Darwin Nunez and others.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has confirmed via his twitter account that talks are being held to bring ajax Jurrien Timber to Old Trafford."Manchester United again internally discussed Jurrien Timber in the last 48hrs. Timber's name was also mentioned again the first meeting between Manchester United and ten Hag days ago".The overhaul has begun.
