Solskjaer seek to sell Man Utd defensive trio

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to sell three defenders this summer.

The Mirror says Solskjaer is ready to axe Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo this summer. The Red Devils are expecting a busy summer, with Ed Woodward set to back Solskjaer in the transfer window.

Jones has made just two Premier League appearances under the Norwegian this season and is deemed surplus to requirements.

Smalling and Rojo, meanwhile, were shipped out on loan this season.

The English centre-back has impressed at Roma, with Smalling starting 21 Serie A games for the Italian giants.

As for Rojo, the 30-year-old has made just one appearance for Estudiantes in Argentina since leaving Old Trafford.
