It seems Manchester United could be busy in January and according to reports they could allow two of their star players to leave.

The January transfer window is almost like the lottery, it can swing really badly at times for those who participate in it and on a few occasions it can be life changing for certain clubs. Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are expected to be busy in the upcoming winter window and they will be hoping it will be the latter fortune for them rather than the former.

Of course however in order to buy, United must first get rid of the many deadwood players who currently infest Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad in order to free up space for the Norwegian to bring in his own players. With those new players Solskjaer can finally implement his own style of play at the club and fulfil his mission to get United back to the top of world football once more.

There are many players who are currently not good enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ambition and who United would like to see depart in January and it seems that the club’s wish could soon come true.

According to the Daily Star via TeamTalk, Manchester United will be looking to offload the Serbian international Nemanja Matic and the centre back Marcos Rojo in the January transfer window. Ed Woodward himself has given the ‘green light’ for the club to sell the two players.

There have been plenty of rumoured interest in Nemanja Matic with the player having fallen down the pecking order after the emergence of Scott McTominay under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Teams from Italy such as the likes of Inter Milan and AC Milan are rumoured to be interested in the player but recently Atletico Madrid have also been linked with the veteran Serbian international.

Meanwhile Marcos Rojo has also fallen out of favour with the club especially since the arrival of Harry Maguire and it is clear the Argentine defender is not in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future plans.

With neither player needed at Old Trafford and having them off the wage bill would be the best solution for the club.
