Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been urged to keep three Manchester United players who have their contracts at Old Trafford running out at the end of the season.
The Reds have started the season poorly and will be hoping to turn things around, however, they will also be looking forward to the future in terms of incomings and outgoings.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe is expected to take charge of the footballing operations of the club once his 25 per cent stake is ratified in the coming weeks. He will be aiming to bring in a new chief executive and sporting director.
The British billionaire and his team will be tasked with an important summer transfer window which will be crucial for Erik ten Hag.
With several players’ contracts at Old Trafford expiring in June 2024, there will be a decision to be made on who is offered new deals.
Ex-Man United defender Paul Parker has urged the new owner to keep three of those players. He firstly believes that Aaron Wan-Bissaka should remain at the club.
“He’s proved himself. He wants to make a point, he wants a Manchester United career and he’s dug himself from somewhere,” said Parker on MyBettingSites.co.uk.
“A lot of that goes down to the manager and himself as well and how he’s come back. And he’s been consistent since he’s come back.
“He’s tried to improve his game, the attacking side of it. He’s more of a patient defender than what he was when he arrived. He lived off the slide tackle. Now his defending has gotten better. He’s staying on his feet and his positioning has gotten better.
“He’s the best right-back at Man Utd at this given time. So, I think they should try and keep him.”
The former defender went on to mention another player at the back in Sweden captain Victor Lindelof, who has played 15 games so far this season.
“If Lindelof wants to stay then you’ve got somebody who’s honest,” he added. “Someone who can come in and do a job. Somebody who’s happy to do that and someone who seems like a nice, honest person.
“I certainly wouldn’t be pushing him out of the door. The ones who have been kept in the door by giving ludicrous contracts to, there’s a lot more of them than Victor Lindelofs at the club.”
Finally, Parker explained that Hannibal Mejbri should remain at the club despite a lack of opportunities in the first-team so far.
“Hannibal has to be a yes but he hasn’t been given enough time to really prove himself,” he stated.
“He might decide to take it upon himself and say no I don’t want to be there ’cause I’m not going to get what I want.
“He’s got an opportunity to maybe play for another Premier League club or maybe play for a club in the Championship with aspirations to play in the Premier League.
“Hannibal is a hungry player who will definitely do himself justice at another club like he did with Birmingham City.”
