Man Utd losing massive £365,000-a-week on unwanted players

Manchester United are losing a huge amount of money on unwanted players, it has been revealed.

The Sun says United are losing £365,000 a week on wages for fringe players.

Only Chris Smalling looked close to getting a move away from Old Trafford after a successful season on loan at Roma.

The Serie A club wanted him permanently, but are refusing to meet United's £16million asking price having offered £12million.

At 28, Phil Jones should be in the prime of his career. Yet he always seems to be injured and when he is fit manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not trust to play him, making his new contract of £75,000 a week until 2023 seem nonsensical.

Jesse Lingard is sitting on a £100,000 a week contract that still has a year to run.

Sergio Romero on £50,000 a week is now third choice goalkeeper since Dean Henderson has returned.
