Manchester United chief Ed Woodward driven to Carrington to seal three transfer exits


MANCHESTER UNITED chief executive Ed Woodward is at the club’s Carrington training ground as he looks to sort out the futures of three want away players, according to reports.

While the English transfer window has closed, United are still free to sell players as windows around Europe remain open.

The Sun claim Woodward was driven to Carrington this morning and that the main focus of his attention will be Alexis Sanchez.

Top-earner Sanchez, 30, pockets around £505,000 per week so finding him a new club is proving difficult.

Roma were reportedly invested in taking the winger on loan but have been out off by his huge demands even if United were willing to subsidise some of his wages.

Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian, both 29, are also unsettled and reportedly looking for moves away.

Rojo almost moved to Everton on transfer deadline day and is attracting interest from the likes of Fenerbahce.

Inter Milan are said to be keen on signing Italian full-back Darmian.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted earlier this week that some exits are like between now and the close of the European transfer windows.

“There might be, yes,” he said when asked about players leaving Old Trafford.

“The thing is it’s not about who we don’t want here, it’s about who we do want here, and you’re going to see that in the team selections and who’s going to be with us in the long run.”

Getting Sanchez off the wage bill appears to be a priority.

Since going from Arsenal in January 2017 the Chilean has scored just five goals in 45 appearances in all competitions.

That does not appear to have put off potential suitors in Serie A.

As well as Roma, AC Milan are reportedly monitoring his situation along with Inter, Juventus and Napoli.

His agent, Fernando Felicevich, is said to have held talks with Juventus officials in May.

Italian clubs have until September 2 to do a deal.
