Man United set to offload high-earning quartet

Manchester United plan to offload four of their highest earners – Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

According to the Daily Mail, United are desperate to get the players off their wage bill in an attempt to streamline it.

Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr are interested in United duo Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Casemiro is United’s highest earner at £375,000 per week. The Brazilian turns 32 soon and has been struggling with injuries for most of the season.

United will want to recoup a chunk of the £72 million transfer fee they paid to Real Madrid for Casemiro’s services.

Wan-Bissaka has 18 months left on his deal and United could cash in on him.

However, it is unclear if he is willing to accept the move to the Middle East, with West Ham United interested in securing his services. 

Al-Nassr recently saw an offer for Tottenham Hotspur’s Emerson Royal rejected, prompting them to turn to the 26-year-old former Crystal Palace defender.

Sancho recently returned to Borussia Dortmund on loan after a torrid spell in Manchester.

The Red Devils are paying a third of his £290,000-a-week salary while he re-establishes himself in Germany and are desperate to get him off their books.

Sancho has already rejected interest from the Saudi Pro League as he wants to continue playing in Europe.

United are also set to let high earners Martial and Varane leave this summer. 

Martial is on £250,000 per week despite mostly playing back-up to summer signing Rasmus Hojlund, and United want him off their wage bill.

Varane is on £340,000 weekly and could be moving away from Old Trafford this summer after reportedly falling out with manager Erik ten Hag.

However, United will consider giving Varane a new deal if he agrees to take a cut on his massive salary.
