Manchester United’s potential transfer window departures as Roy Keane’s concerns answered

Manchester United are unlikely to sign many players in the January transfer window, but there is a chance that a number of players will leave Old Trafford in the new year.

Erik ten Hag has already confirmed that the Reds are looking to recruit a striker following the recent departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, several United players are being linked with moves away from the club in January – with United keen to move on some of their fringe players, while also allowing certain younger players to depart on loan.

With the winter transfer window now open, MEN Sport has taken a look at seven players who could leave Old Trafford at some point this month.

Premier League rules are surprisingly complicated when it comes to shirt numbers. For example, a new signing is unlikely to be allowed to wear number 99, instead, “squad numbers must be consecutive and close to the current highest number”.
