Erik ten Hag is keen to offload as many as four Manchester United players in the next two weeks, according to a report.

With the successful acquisition of Chelsea star Mason Mount in a deal worth €64.2 million, Manchester United appear to have kickstarted their summer business at last. On the incoming front, a deal for Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana appears to be close, with the Cameroonian set to replace out-of-contract club legend David de Gea.

Moreover, United are reportedly making progress on the potential transfer of Atalanta's Rasmus Hojlund, who has become the Red Devils' number-one striker target due to their relatively small budget and Financial Fair Play restrictions. But it's not just potential arrivals that Erik ten Hag and company are working hard to finalise.

In terms of outgoings, the Dutchman has identified four high-profile players he wants to get out of the club within the next two weeks.

Maguire and Sancho to bid farewell?

Ten Hag's ambitious plans have been revealed by The Independent. The report claims that Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho, Scott McTominay and Fred are all set to be axed with the head coach having made 'definitive decisions' on the futures of his squad's players.

Whether he will succeed on this front is up for debate given that United will likely be asking for sizeable sums in return for the likes of Sancho and Maguire in order to give themselves more room to manoeuvre when it comes to signing players.

Apparently, the Manchester outfit's asking price for club captain Maguire is "£50m but buying clubs believe he is actually available for £35m." As for Fred and McTominay, the likes of Fulham, West Ham and Newcastle are said to be keeping an eye on developments.

Sancho is potentially a Tottenham target, but little has developed in terms of concrete movements for the players. Aston Villa are also keen on the former Dortmund star, as we exclusively revealed in June.
