Manchester United’s new football director John Murtough is set for a hectic first transfer window at the club with a number of positions highlighted for strengthening. It is unclear what budget the Glazers will hand down to the United chief but there is a way he can fund a move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
The England international has made it clear to his club that he wants to move on this summer.
United are touted as one of the favourites to capture the 27-year-old, who could fire them to Premier League glory.
But they may have to raise the funds through player sales so Express Sport has taken a look at four players who could be moved on. All player valuations are taken from transfermarkt.co.uk.
First up, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may need to move on one of his goalkeepers as David de Gea and Dean Henderson continue to battle for the No 1 shirt.
Henderson is expected to be the long-term man between the sticks at Old Trafford, meaning De Gea could be sold.

The Spaniard is valued at £20m and would interest a number of La Liga clubs, including Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
Youngster Brandon Williams has found minutes hard to come by this year, especially give the return to form of Luke Shaw.
Alex Telles is also ahead of the 20-year-old in the pecking order so he may have to go elsewhere to progress his career.
Newcastle have been rumoured to be interested in the full-back, and his valuation sits at £9m.
Another way to raise £9m – which would take the total up to £36m – would be by selling Nemanja Matic.
Jose Mourinho is apparently interested in taking the Serbian to Roma when he takes over at the end of the season.
And finally, to bring in some significant revenue there would have to be a blockbuster departure – and there is one that could solve several problems.
Paul Pogba has just 12 months left on his current contract and the Red Devils will not want to let him walk away for free for a second time.
Real Madrid and Juventus are monitoring the France international and he could be available for £54m, according to transfermarkt.
Meanwhile, Kane was has been discussing his future with Gary Neville and he hinted that a £100m offer may be enough to secure his signature.
He Sky Sports’ The Overlap: “He’s been great with me if I’m totally honest. I mean, he’s always rewarded me with contracts. Like obviously I signed maybe a four or five-year deal when I was 21 but I’ve done well so he’s added to that. He’s been great with me.
“He’s been fair with me. He’s never kind of just held me on to a contract and said ‘No, I’ve paid you that. You’re going to stay on that’.
“So, we’ve always had a good relationship, but yeah, I’m not sure how that conversation will go if I’m honest, but you know what it’s like as players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking.
“I don’t know, I mean he might want to sell me. He might be thinking ‘If I could get 100 million for you, then why not?’
“Do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.”
