This summer promises to be one where Manchester United take one more step towards returning to the top of English football. For this, a number of new players are expected to arrive at Old Trafford. But some could be heading the other way as well.
A number of players have entered the last few months of their current contracts with the club. And it is possible that quite a few of them won’t be at Old Trafford come next season.
As far as that list is concerned, the likes of Juan Mata, Sergio Romero, and Edinson Cavani are the most notable ones to depart if things stay the same, although there have been some rumours which suggest that both Mata and Cavani could end up staying.
Other than them, Joel Pereira, Lee Grant and Paul Woolston could see their respective contracts run out at the end of the season as well

Grant was expected to sign a renewal with Manchester United
It was initially believed that Manchester United would keep their current third-choice goalkeeper, Lee Grant, by handing him a new one-year contract before his current one expired. But as reported by the Daily Mail, the Red Devils have made a U-turn and the veteran goalkeeper looks set to depart Old Trafford come the end of the season.
Signed from Stoke City for a transfer fee believed to be around £1.5 million in 2018, Grant has made only two appearances, according to stats from Transfermarkt, for the first-team so far.
But off the pitch, he is admired for his work and is a popular member of the squad, pushing the likes of David de Gea, Dean Henderson, and Sergio Romero to do better ever since joining the club.
With Romero expected to leave as well and the future of De Gea appearing to be up in the air, Grant leaving could mean that the Red Devils will have a very different looking goalkeeping unit come next season.
