Manchester United transfer news: All six stars Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could lose in January | Football | Sport
Manchester United have been in good form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently. And, as a result, no new signings are expected to arrive in the January transfer window. Several players could be on their way out of Old Trafford, however, so we’ll now take a look at every star who could be on the move.
Jesse Lingard made his first start for United in over three months against Watford in the FA Cup on Saturday.
However, the England international endured a miserable afternoon and could now be primed to depart Old Trafford.
Inter Milan are reportedly keen on bringing him to Italy, having raided the Red Devils for Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young over the past 18 months.
And West Ham and Newcastle are keen, too.
United recently extended Lingard’s contract by a year but that was a tactical move, with Solskjaer ready to jettison the 28-year-old this summer.
United thought they were onto a winner when they signed Marcos Rojo from Sporting Lisbon in 2014.
Having impressed at the World Cup in Brazil, the Red Devils believed the Argentina international would be the ideal replacement for Rio Ferdinand.
But Rojo has never lived up to expectations at the club.
He’s not played for United for a year now, having spent the second half of last season on loan at Estudiantes de La Plata.
Solskjaer has confirmed he can go – so that’s what we’re expecting to happen.

Sergio Romero was angry when his move to Everton fell through in the summer.
The Argentina international’s wife slammed the decision to block a move to Goodison Park – and he’s not played for United since.
Romero has reportedly said his goodbyes at Old Trafford ahead of an exit.
And with David De Gea and Dean Henderson ahead of the pecking order, it seems only a matter of time before he moves elsewhere.
David Beckham would love to sign him for Inter Miami – but a move to Argentina would appeal far more.
Sir Alex Ferguson tipped Phil Jones for greatness upon leaving Old Trafford back in 2013.
But the England international, like Romero and Rojo, has never lived up to his blockbuster billing.
Jones has been at United since 2012 and is one of the last servants of the Ferguson era – but has spent more time on the treatment table than on the pitch.
Even if he was fit this season, it’s unlikely he’d have started many games.
So Jones is another who could be on the move, with Newcastle previously being linked.

Brandon Williams flourished for United last season, making 36 appearances across all competitions.
But his appearance against Watford on Saturday night was just his sixth of the campaign.
United have insisted he won’t be departing but that stance could change given the current situation.
Both Luke Shaw and Alex Telles are currently ahead of the England international in the Old Trafford pecking order.
So a loan away could help him develop.
