Solskjaer ‘ready to axe’ five Man Utd players in ruthless summer overhaul

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly ready to overhaul his Manchester United team in the summer and potentially axe up to five players.

The Red Devils have turned a corner in recent months under the Norwegian's leadership, and he is keen to maintain momentum going into next season.

Solskjaer inherited something of a mess at Manchester United when he took over from Jose Mourinho in 2018.

The Old Trafford club was bursting at the seams with ageing superstars on huge money, but not putting in the performances to warrant such a wage.

Solskjaer introduced a new way of working in transfer windows; prioritising signing younger, lesser-known players, and helping them achieve their potential.

Daniel James is the best example.

But Solskjaer hasn't been afraid to splash serious cash either in landing the likes of Harry Maguire for £80million and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for £50million.

All the expenditure means Solskjaer has to find a way to balance the books. And offloading players also gives the Norwegian the chance to remove stars that don't fit his way of playing.

According to the Manchester Evening News, there are five players whose futures are uncertain at Old Trafford: Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Chris Smalling, and Alexis Sanchez.
