Manchester United hoping to raise over £100 million with five loan players leaving Old Trafford



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are hoping to raise over £100 million this summer from sales of loan players with INEOS looking to ship off five players.

There has been a plethora of extensive reports in the last few days that INEOS are open to selling almost every single one of Manchester United‘s first-team players, with only Alejandro Garnacho, Kobbie Mainoo, and Rasmus Højlund safe from transfer.

However, this also extends to those currently on loan, and United are hoping to squeeze at least £100 million in sales this summer from those currently plying their trade elsewhere.

According to The Athletic, one loanee who is set to leave permanently this summer is Alvaro Fernandez, with the talented left-back now set to have his buy option triggered by Benfica, who he joined in January.

The initial fee is £5.2 million, with a further £2.6 million in bonuses. Since the start of 2024, the Spaniard has made 13 appearances and recently scored his first goal for the Liga Portugal side.

However, he is not the only loanee who is set to exit Old Trafford permanently this summer.

Another academy product who is expected to leave is Mason Greenwood, who has been on loan at La Liga club Getafe after United decided it would be better for the now 22-year-old to recommence his career away from Old Trafford following a CPS case that was eventually dropped.

United are said to want as much as £40 million for Greenwood this summer after the Englishman’s successful season in Spain.

Another large chunk of this £100 million is expected to come from the sale of Jadon Sancho. After Erik ten Hag barred the winger from playing for United again this season after he refused to apologise following a public spat, he was sent on loan to Borussia Dortmund.

He has excelled back in Germany, helping the side reach a Champions League semi-final against PSG, which has helped raise his transfer value. Reports from earlier this year claimed United will be looking for £50 million in order to recoup as much of the £73 million they paid for him in 2021.

The fourth player who will almost certainly depart is Donny van de Beek, who has spent this season on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt. He has only played ten times for the Bundesliga outfit and will likely not fetch more than £10 million, but this would then take INEOS over the £100 million mark.

Dan Gore, who has been on loan at Port Vale, is expected to return to United, while the future of Hannibal Mejbri and Facundo Pellistri remain unclear.

Brandon Williams’ current contract is set to expire next month.
