Daily Courier – Manchester United have announced that eleven players worth $180 million will leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of this month.
Edinson Cavani and Lee Grant join Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, who were already confirmed to be leaving.
Paul McShane will continue his coaching role with the club’s Professional Development Phase after calling time on his playing career.
Meanwhile, Paul Woolston has been forced to retire due to a serious hip injury.
The goalkeeper, 23, announced the devastating news in April after being warned by doctors that he may not walk again if he were to continue playing.
He received support from fellow Man United goalkeepers David de Gea and Dean Henderson.
Pogba is expected to return to Juventus on a free transfer this summer, six years after he was signed by the Red Devils for a club-record fee of £89million.
Spanish midfielder Mata has revealed that he is open to the idea of a Premier League switch, despite spending the past eight years at Old Trafford.
West Ham are willing to bring Lingard back to the London Stadium after the midfielder experienced a successful spell with the club during the second half of the 2020/21 season.
Matic has reportedly agreed a deal which would see him reunite with Jose Mourinho at Roma.
And Cavani has been linked with a sensational switch to La Liga champions Real Madrid.
