Obviously supporters of football clubs across the globe normally care more about what players are signed rather than those who are sold, and this is clearly shown at Manchester United as many supporters of the side continue to hope for Jadon Sancho to be acquired.
However utdreport have written an article, which they posted on Twitter, about how selling some players this summer is just as important as recruiting them.
In their article, they believe that with recent events affecting finances, they need to sell some of the dead wood in their squad, so that the club can continue progressing forward, to reach the necessary level to challenge.
They tweeted, ‘United managed to recuperate £72m in player sales last summer, the most since 2015. They’ve only managed to offload Alexis Sánchez so far this summer’, and it’s safe to say that this article has opened up a debate across the United fan base, with many frustrated at the club for not being able to sell some players to generate some finances, whilst some think it takes time but sales will happen. One even mentioned that the club need a Director of Football to help these sales happen.
The club definitely have some players who are surplus to requirements that they can sell and build up some finances to bring some players in. Players like Marcus Rojo, Sergio Romero and Chris Smalling can’t get close to the first team squad, so it would really benefit all if they moved on, but the club have not given themselves a lot of time as such players are still here with less than two weeks of the window remaining.
Here is what fans said following the news:

I think next year, we should focus on selling the players. This year is unlikely because of the player’s refusal due to covid. With the money we make from selling, we should buy upamecano and a center forward.
