Manchester United strikers Dimitar Berbatov, Federico Macheda and Bebe are all up for sale.

The Telegraph says United are to step up efforts to secure transfers or loans for fringe players such as Berbatov, Macheda and Bebe between now and the Aug 31 deadline.

Having spent almost £50 million on new signings this summer with the purchases of Robin Van Persie, Shinji Kagawa, Nick Powell and Dutch left-back Alexander Buttner, who completed his £3.9 million transfer from Vitesse Arnhem on Tuesday, United are now focused on offloading those players deemed surplus to requirements.
