56,000 Manchester United fans have given their opinion on who should be fired this summer as the Red Devils prepare for a mass overhaul.
Caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick recently said as many as 10 new players could be needed in the next transfer window, with United now five years without a trophy and increasingly unlikely to play in the Champions League next season after back-to-back defeats against Liverpool. and Arsenal on the road.
His arrival could trigger the end of many at Old Trafford and United supporters are voting on who should be chosen in a new Sky Sports poll that has garnered 1.7 million votes.
Of the 30 starters included, Paul Pogba was the most outstanding player that fans want. The World Cup winner appears to have played his last game, having limped out in the 10th minute of the 4-0 at Liverpool’s hands.
Rangnick admitted: “I don’t think it’s very likely he’ll play again” and, while he has spoken in the current campaign, Pogba’s contract runs out in the summer.
75 percent want club captain Harry Maguire out after a string of poor defensive displays, while defenders Eric Bailly (72.7 percent), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (65 percent), Phil Jones (90 percent) cent) Victor Lindelof (52 percent) cent) are also not wanted.
Nemanja Matic has already announced his departure – which will please 94% of fans. Juan Mata (89.3 percent), Edinson Cavani (86 percent) and Jesse Lingard (82.4 percent) are both out of contract and the consensus is that it’s time for the trio to move on.
In terms of loans, both Andreas Pereira (87 percent) and Anthony Martial (86%) are no longer wanted – while there is slightly less demand for Brandon Williams gym product (47.6%) to leave.
Another impressive, but not exactly surprising, result of the poll is that 85% want the much-maligned Glazer family to step down from the club after 17 years as owner.
On the opposite side of things in terms of fan support, Jadon Sancho (93.6 percent), Bruno Fernandes (90.9 percent), Anthony Elanga (89.9 percent), David De Gea (88.3 percent) per cent), Raphael Varane (85.3 per cent), Hannibal Mejbri (79.5 per cent) and Scott McTominay (75 per cent) are the top players fans are hoping to come under Ten Hag’s tutelage.
