Report: Jose Mourinho planning £100m summer clearout

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly react to his side’s FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea by offloading a number of first-team players.

The Red Devils ended Mourinho’s second campaign at Old Trafford trophyless, having also finished second to Manchester City in the Premier League and failed to make any real impact in the other two cup competitions.

According to The Sun, the 55-year-old has grown tired of his underperforming squad and is looking to bring in more than £100m through sales over the next two months.

Anthony Martial is said to be among those on their way out of United, although his £70m asking price may put off any interested parties, while Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are also expected to be culled.

Any money brought in from players sales will go straight back into recruiting new talent ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, with Napoli duo Kalidou Koulibaly and Jorginho rumoured targets.
