Manchester United are active in the transfer market this summer and sales could be just as important as signings.

The club have already brought in Mason Mount and are closing in on Andre Onana’s signature.

The goalkeeper travelled to Manchester on Tuesday ahead of a medical and United are also chasing Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund.

However, on the flip side, United have done minimal business in terms of outgoings.

Zidane Iqbal left the club for a fee of £850,000, however, The Reds do have a 40% sell-on clause in the midfielder’s contract. Other than that, there have been no significant exits.

United need to sell players in order to buy more and still abide by FFP regulations.

Dean Henderson, Fred and Anthony Elanga are three players that are well-linked with moves away but there is nothing official yet.

However, latest reports from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano have provided positive signs for United in their attempt to move on the deadwood within the squad.

The Italian reporter revealed that Alex Telles’ move to Saudi Arabia club is a ‘done deal’ and that he will be leaving United after three years with the club.

Telles joined in the summer of 2020 and will be leaving for £4 million plus add-ons, according to Romano.

Whilst the fee is low, it was further explained that it was the only cash offer for the Brazilian, with European clubs enquiring about a free transfer for the left-back.

Meanwhile, forward Marcus Rashford signed a bumper contract on Tuesday which keeps him at Old Trafford until June 2028.

It is a massive boost to Ten Hag to tie down his star player who scored 30 goals last term and there have been two key details revealed about the contract situation.

Firstly, it was reported by the ever-reliable David Ornstein that Rashford received more lucrative proposals from teams in the Premier League and within Europe but turned them down to stay at United, where he has always dreamed of winning major honours.

This is a fine example of the no.10’s love for the club and drive to push them forwards in the coming years. “I’ve already had some amazing experiences at this incredible club, but there is still a lot more to achieve and I remain relentlessly determined to win more trophies in the years ahead,” he said after the announcement of his extension.

The second detail within the contract of the 26-year-old is the weekly wage that he will be on.

Despite prior rumours stating that the the salary will be around £375,000-per-week, Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail has explained that the base wage of Rashford’s contract will instead be at £300,000-per-week.

It was added that Rashford’s deal is highly incentivised based on performances and that his deal could increase to £325,000-per-week with bonuses.
