For the fourth summer in a row, the Manchester United fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern are fully expecting a huge summer rebuild.
With the resident Red Devils who frequent in their droves ready to welcome Victor Lindelof to Old Trafford, a defensive reshuffle looks to be on the way for Jose Mourinho and his squad.
Indeed, Chris Smalling has been linked with a move away from the Theatre of Dreams of late, despite proving to be a huge figure under Louis van Gaal. Publicly questioned by Jose Mourinho at times this season, the former Fulham man may be on his way out of the club.
The likes of Everton, West Brom and Crystal Palace are all thought to be keen on a man who has won every domestic competition with the Red Devils, as well as the Europa League.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Man United fans on Twitter reacted.
With this Linderlof signing, I'm expecting a certain Chris Smalling to be sold! Jose should please do this for me!

Getting that Smalling money in, and buying Lindelof for £31m. Now that's shrewd business. #MUFC

Selling Chris Smalling will be like a new signing itself.#MUFC
