Mourinho to oversee EIGHT senior players cleared out at Man Utd

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to oversee a massive clearout this summer.

The Daily Mail says United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is understood to be happy with the manager and intrigued by the aggressive way in which he goes about his business.

There is a widespread feeling of major changes at Old Trafford this summer with even big-hitters Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Chris Smalling under threat as Mourinho tries to close the gap on Pep Guardiola and Manchester City by playing more football from the back.

Matteo Darmian, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind are all also likely to depart.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Los Angeles Galaxy last week and club captain Michael Carrick has announced his retirement from playing at the end of the season when he is set to join Mourinho's coaching staff.
