It’s going to be a crazy summer in the market for Manchester United and we believe that Jose will start selling once he knows exactly who is coming in.
And there are a lot of players who probably don’t fit the bill. Manchester United fans must be absolutely delighted that they finally have a world-class coach to separate the diamonds from the duffers.
TFF looks at who might depart.
He looked so off the pace last season and, even though he has had some decent cameos at EURO 2016, he doesn’t really fit into the Mourinho template of dynamic and pacy anchor men. We can’t see him staying. America?
VERDICT: See you later mate
Undoubtedly gifted but inconsistent, Herrera can look like a world-beater but needs to focus if he wants to remain in the ruthless new manager’s plans.
VERDICT: Could get another season to prove his worth
Wasn’t rated by Jose at Chelsea and has been decent at United but that’s really indicative of the whole squad post-Fergie – decent but not great.
VERDICT: Laters mate
TFF never enjoys watching this guy but, strangely, he may be less susceptible to the chop than some others because Mourinho values physical strength. But the blond bombshell rarely fails to drag the quality of games downwards.
VERDICT: Probably off
His continued presence at Manchester United depends on his level of ambition. If he wants to start regularly he will have to move on. If he’s happy to be a utility man he could be handy at times.
VERDICT: Could hang around for another season. 50/50
Has been slowly deteriorating for 5 years.
Jose may opt for younger understudies like the promising Castro Pereira and Sam Johnstone.
He just doesn’t fit the new template.
He often looks as if he’s just been hit hard on the head.
He may have an Oscar-like future at No.10 for Manchester United under Jose. He definitely doesn’t have the pace or lungs for the wings.
VERDICT: Needs to improve quickly
Now this is a player who could be a big success under Jose. Power, pace, guile. He needs more focus and consistency but we can see Jose putting a much-needed arm around this very talented young man.
Manchester United supporters: who do you think will leave this summer?
