Mourinho To Send 8 Players Out Of Manchester United In January
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is getting ready to carry out a drastic clear-out in January, as he seeks to arrest the slump the team is going through.
The Portuguese, who replaced Louis van Gaal in the summer, is coming under increased pressure following a miserable run of results.
United won their first three Premier League fixtures under Mourinho, but have only managed one victory in their last seven outings. This leaves the Red Devils eight points off the top.
Mourinho will try to change things around, when the next transfer window opens in less than a month.
According to The Sun, Mourinho is eyeing a £30million move for Atletico Madrid defender, Diego Godin, to help sort out his defensive crisis.
The report further states that the former Chelsea boss, has drawn up a list of eight players that will leave Old Trafford.
Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian are named as certain departures. Bastian Schweinsteiger is also expected to leave, despite returning to first-team training.
The future of Phil Jones and Michael Carrick is also up in the air.
