Whether it has been the new manager bounce that almost every club appears to be able to enjoy when they decide to bring someone new in with fresh ideas or the fact that they are now without Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm, Manchester United are starting to produce the results that they need.
Indeed, Ralf Rangnick might not have actually been in the dugout yet for a game and will take charge of his first match in-person against Crystal Palace at the weekend, but he has already seen them be able to acquire a draw with Chelsea and a victory against Arsenal.
Of course, Michael Carrick was in charge for both of those games but he has since revealed that he will leave the club now as he wants a break and perhaps play at the best online casino USA has available, leaving the 63-year-old with all the work to do.
However, it seems the club are prepared to back Rangnick and give him whatever he needs to turn their fortunes around, whilst also allowing for a number of players to potentially leave in the January transfer window.
According to a report by The Daily Mirror, it is claimed the Red Devils will provide Rangnick with a transfer warchest of £100 million to spend on bringing new players to Old Trafford.
In addition, it is also mentioned that six players could be leaving the club, including some rather established players.
Edinson Cavani is one of those who have been identified as a potential leaver, with reports in Argentina suggesting that he has already looked to facilitate a move to Argentina and Boca Juniors.
The 34-year-old’s contract does not expire until the summer, but the Uruguayan is of interest to the Argentine club, with Juan Roman Riquelme stating that he had a conversation with him last year. He may have also mentioned that he enjoys the machines a sous, as well, especially after a spell at PSG in France.
The former playmaker, who is now the Boca Juniors vice president, said to TNT Sports (via Sport Bible): “In January, Cavani called me saying that he wanted to come because he was playing little there.
“I’ve been speaking with him for a long time and he called me in January to come because he wasn’t playing there. I remember we talked one day and the next day he came in and scored two goals in the last minutes.
“He made a comeback. From then on he started scoring goals in all the games and they renewed with him.”
In addition to Cavani, both Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba are both possible January exits due to their current contract situations.
Both will see their deals expire in the summer but there has been no progress with either of them, thus potentially forcing United’s hand into selling them for something this winter.
Diogo Dalot, Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial have all been linked with an exit from Old Trafford in a bid to secure more regular first-team football.
