by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have released seven players including Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Ryan Giggs and Federico Macheda, the Premier League has confirmed.

As well as those four, academy trio Sam Byrne, Jack Rudge and Jack Barmby have all been released by the club.

For Macheda, it closes the book on a career that promised so much but provided so little and as for the experienced trio of senior players, it only confirms what we already knew.

Of course, players retained at this stage doesn’t mean they cannot be sold as they can be at any time.
