REVENUE RAISING: The sales Solskjaer can make to fund Man Utd mega spree

As the transfer window begins to kick into top gear, we here at TribalFootball look at the ways in which your club can generate funds without losing valuable players, in order to bring in the big money signings ahead of the 19/20 season.

This Edition: Manchester United Football Club

- Ander Herrera to PSG on a Free Transfer

- James Wilson to Aberdeen on a Free Transfer

- Antonio Valencia to LDU Quito on a Free Transfer

Transfers In:

- Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for €49.50 Million

Players Who Could Potentially Attract Currency


Goalkeepers

There has been much speculation about Manchester United's goalkeeper situation with David De Gea linked to a move and the success of loanee Dean Henderson. However it appears that De Gea will sign a new deal and Henderson will be loaned back Sheffield United for a further season.


Joel Pereira

Position: Goalkeeper

Age: 23

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €765 Thousand

The Portuguese goalkeeper didn't have the best season last time out on loan and with De Gea and Romero ahead of him along with the presence of Dean Henderson, it seems he is surplus to requirements. His absence might give opportunity to the likes of Matej Kovar.

Potential Revenue: €2-4 Million



Lee Grant

Position: Goalkeeper

Age: 36

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €675 Thousand

The veteran shot stopper at age 36 might look for another opportunity to be the number 1 goalkeeper elsewhere.

Potential Revenue: €2-4 Million




Defenders

The defence of Manchester United seems to be constantly in question with players falling in and out of favour more often than managerial changes. As always there will be names on the chopping block this summer transfer window.


Marcos Rojo

Position: Centre-Back

Age: 29

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €10.8 Million

The Argentinian defender struggled for game time in the 18/19 season due to injury and lost his spot to the likes of Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling. His departure could make room for the returning Axel Tuanzebe.

Potential Revenue: €15-20 Million


Eric Bailly

Position: Centre-Back

Age: 25

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €22.5 Million

The potential arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester City might see a defender forced out, and Bailly might be that defender. His absence would also give more opportunity for Tuanzebe.

Potential Revenue: €25-30 Million



Matteo Darmian

Position: Right-Back

Age: 29

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €9 Million

The arrival of big-money signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka is bad news for the Italian full-back. Already struggling for game time, it looks as though opportunity for minutes is bleak. The time has come to sell.

Potential Revenue: €10-15 Million



Timothy Fosu-Mensah

Position: Right-Back

Age: 21

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €6.3 Million

The same applies for Fosu-Mensah who had a really disappointing loan season with Fulham. With Dalot impressing at Old Trafford it seems Fosu-Mensah will be the one who will be cashed in.

Potential Revenue: €10-15 Million



Demetri Mitchell

Position: Left-Back

Age: 22

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €400,000

The English defender had a solid season out on loan last time out, but already finds himself behind Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson. At age 22 it seems as if opportunity will be hard to find.

Potential Revenue: €3-5 Million



Midfielders

Much of United's transfer plans revolve around the movements of Paul Pogba. Pogba, United's most featured player behind De Gea last season has flirted with the possibility of leaving Old Trafford, however it seems more likely that he should stay. If so, here are the possible departures.


Scott McTominay

Position: Central-Midfield

Age: 22

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €10.8 Million

With the potential arrival on Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio as well as interest from Crystal Palace, it might spell the start of a new opportunity for the Scotish midfielder.

Potential Revenue: €20-25 Million



Forwards

The forward line has also been under cloud with rumours linking Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan. United's transfer plans will likely rest on his fate.


Alexis Sanchez

Position: Left-Wing

Age: 30

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €31.5 Million

Sanchez has always struggled to hit the same rich form he experienced when playing at Arsenal. With the arrival of Daniel James, it seems it might be the time to let the Chilean find a fresh opportunity. The only problem will be finding suitors to pay his massive wage-packet however Juventus and Inter Milan are said to be interested.

Potential Revenue: €25-30 Million



Total Potential Revenue: €112-148 Million



It is a big transfer window for the Red Devils with arguably their three biggest names not guaranteed to even be at Old Trafford for the 2019/20 Season,,owever with these transfer funds through, they can ensure they have the ability to potentially cover for these players if they leave, or bolster the squad around them if they stay.
