Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be willing to sell up to seven Manchester United players in January, with Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek likely close to leaving Old Trafford.

The Red Devils strengthened Solskjaer’s side over the summer with the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Now Solskjaer is hoping to shrink his squad and increase his transfer pot by offloading some less important players including Martial and Van de Beek.

Martial fell down the pecking order at Old Trafford while Van de Beek suffered a dire fate in Manchester following his £ 40million transfer from Ajax in 2020.

The sun say Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot could also be set to exit, with Manchester United already making plans for the January transfer window.

England international Lingard was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford over the summer after spending the second half of last season on loan at West Ham.

Jones and Bailly, meanwhile, have hardly played for Manchester United in the past two years due to their injury issues.

Solskjaer’s side travel to east London on Sunday to face ex-manager David Moyes’ West Ham and look to get back on their way to victory after Tuesday’s shocking Champions League loss to Young Boys.

Moyes was asked about Manchester United’s title chances in the Premier League ahead of the clash and said: “I think they will always have to be competitive and try to win trophies, try to win the Premier League – that’s what this club does.

“They have a good balance between youth and experience in the team. I think Ole has had a really good chance to build a squad and a squad and I think he does a good job.

“He has a team that is more than capable of winning the Premier League this year. I see it as a huge opportunity to manage the biggest club in the world.

“But I don’t blame anyone other than myself. I needed to win more games. In the biggest club in the world, you have to win matches and unfortunately I haven’t won enough.

“Ole is doing a really good job. I think every manager at any club would ask for a bit of time and if you get the chance it will definitely help you build your team and get your thoughts on your team.
