Man Utd will listen to offers for Bruno Fernandes

But one man omitted from that list is Fernandes, who would be allowed to leave for the right price.

The Red Devils have made an asking price of £80 million for the 29-year-old, in a bid to give them freedom to spend more in the window.

The report goes on to state that the likelihood is that Fernandes will end up staying at Old Trafford and will eventually settle on a new deal.

At the moment, the club’s budget of around £40m to £50m can only be boosted by player sales. Any sale of players such as Marcus Rashford or Scott McTominay counts as pure profit in terms of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

Veteran Casemiro is expected to leave for a club in the Saudi Pro League, and Antony will be sold if Man Utd receive an appropriate offer for him.

Meanwhile, Victor Lindelof, Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are expected to go, as well as Jadon Sancho. Mason Greenwood, is also likely to leave on a permanent basis.
