REVEALED: Mourinho wants 5 senior Man Utd players sold

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to oversee five senior player sales this summer.

The Independent says heading out of Old Trafford is likely to be captain Wayne Rooney.

Rooney's influence at the club has drained away this season and he could be moved on.

It's claimed Italian defender Matteo Darmian could also bid farewell to the club.

Phil Jones and Ashley Young also look set to depart with United open to offers for the English pair.

Meanwhile, for Mourinho a striker is the top priority, although he could now target two after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's lengthy injury layoff.

A new centre-back is also wanted.

Midfield could also be strengthened and a new goalkeeper will be required if David de Gea joins Real Madrid.
