After Manchester United completed the loan of Eric Bailly to Olympique Marseille, which is very likely to become a permanent deal because of some of the clauses included in the contract, Erik ten Hag, and the club are already focusing on more potential departures before the transfer window closes in two weeks.

The transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano reported on his podcast CaughtOffside that the Red Devils want to sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka and James Garner next. These two players apparently don’t count for the new manager and the club’s board is also willing to let them go on a permanent transfer so other players could arrive in their positions.

The most surprising thing is the inclusion of James Garner on the transfer list. The 21-year-old midfielder is one of the best players that have come out of the academy in recent years. He has spent the last two seasons developing on loan at Nottingham Forest and he even was a crucial part of the team getting promoted to the Premier League.

The 20-time champions of England are expecting to receive at least £14 million for Garner since there are a lot of Premier League clubs interested in him. Southampton, Nottingham Forest, and Everton are the ones with more chances of signing him. On the other hand, the only club interested in Wan-Bissaka is his former team Crystal Palace.

The first exit

It was also reported by Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic that the Red Devils will only sign a right-back if Wan-Bissaka is sold first. Erik ten Hag is desperate to find someone who can compete with Diogo Dalot on the right-hand side of the defense. For that reason, the club might even accept a loan for the English full-back so a new player could arrive in his place.
