Only 7 safe as angry Mourinho plans Man Utd clearout

Only seven players are guaranteed their place in Manchester United's squad next season.

The Irish Independent says the talk is that manager Jose Mourinho has had it with many of them, and very few are safe in the summer.

Mourinho would be willing to consider the sale of pretty much any players bar David De Gea, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Juan Mata. They are currently the only ones who have his full trust.

United sources are keen to point out that such swings have been a trend of Mourinho's time so far, and that his moods have been greatly influenced by the most recent big results.

That has led to transfer plans drastically changing from month to month - in a way that just wouldn't happen at Manchester City now due to their approach - and it is possible that victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend could cause another reversion.
