Manchester United fans want manager Jose Mourinho to axe six players in the January transfer window and replace them with four new signings at Old Trafford.
The Manchester United Evening News recently asked the United fans to vote for the players they would like to see the exit door and also to vote for the players they would like to see at the club in January when the transfer window re-opens.
The six players who got the exit votes were: Phil Jones, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay, Marcus Rojo and Marouane Fellaini.
Phil Jones received the highest number of votes from the supporters with 44.8%, followed by Schneiderlin in second with 44.1%. Despite playing regular football under Mourinho this season, Belgian Marouane Fellaini received 18.4% to come at the bottom of the vote, indicating that United supporters do not want the former Everton star to stay at the club.
In reality, English defender Phil Jones is the most likely to leave the club followed by midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger. The trio in total has featured just three times for the Red Devils this season, with Jones playing once, Schneiderlin featuring twice and German midfielder Schweinstieger who hasn’t played a game this campaign. The former Germany vice captain has been linked with a move to the Major League Soccer team Chicago Fire.
United fans also want 22 year old Memphis Depay to get released by manager Mourinho. The Dutch International who signed for the club back in 2015 from PSV Eindhoven has just featured 33 times scoring only 2 goals. Depay has been linked with a move to Italian giants Inter Milan who are also eyeing up moves for fellow United defenders Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian.
The four players that United fans want to see at Old Trafford are: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, AS Monaco defender Fabinho, Diego Godin and Real Madrid star Isco.
The number one signing fans would like to see at Old Trafford is the charismatic Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international had a very impressive 2015-16 season, he was the second top goal scorer of the Bundesliga behind Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski and was also named Bundesliga Player of the year later the same year. 74.7% Manchester United fans have voted for Aubameyang to be the prime signing for United in January.
Manchester United fans also want defenders Diego Godin and Fabinho. Godin who is a fan favourite at Atletico Madrid is also on the Red Devils’ Christmas list.
Fabinho and Isco are also going to be good addition to the United squad, if United decide to sell the likes of Schweinstieger and Schneiderlin then Mourinho is going to need an additional midfielder and Spanish international Isco remains the perfect choice.
