Man Utd struggling to shift fringe players due to wage demands

Manchester United are struggling to find buyers for their transfer-listed fringe players.

ESPN says United are struggling to sell some of their fringe players because of high wages.

United are willing to listen to offers for Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Andreas Pereira and Sergio Romero and hope to raise transfer funds through sales.

But none have yet left Old Trafford this summer and it's claimed those players would have to take pay cuts to seal permanent exits from the club.

Smalling spent last season on-loan with Roma, while Rojo was with Estudiantes from January.
