Manchester United are said to be heading towards mutiny, as the club struggles to offload a host of fringe players.
However, the club has again struggled to offload a number of peripheral players and an already sizeable squad is starting to look bloated.
Although Bailly signed a new contract back in May, he was quick to express reservations about his first team future.
He said, “I don’t want to be a starter one game and a substitute for another five.
“The new contract is fine but if I don’t play I will be open to listening to other proposals.”
The other three all enjoyed decent loan spells last term and are thought to be understandably desperate for more game time.
Pereira expressed his own concerns recently, saying, “In Manchester or elsewhere, the time has come to play, to have at least an hour per game on the field, to have the confidence to play.
“I want to be happy, to feel important.”
With Solskjaer now expected to sell before he can improve his midfield weak point, it’s become vital for the Old Trafford hierarchy to show the same ruthlessness with sales as they have with recent acquisitions.
