Manchester United told three big players could leave after Erik ten Hag appointment

The likes of Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes could all leave Manchester United when Erik ten Hag arrives as manager this summer.

That is according to Kleberson, former Man United midfielder, who reckons that it’s hard for a manager to get his ideas across when there are so many big players in the team.

Legit reports have described Erik ten Hag’s move to Old Trafford as ‘99%’ certain, with several reports claiming the Dutchman is going to sign a four-year deal with The Reds.

United are poised to cut ties with over 12 players in the summer over expired contracts and lack of playing time.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Axel Tuanzebe and others will become free agents at the end of the season.

Kleberson still believes that Ronaldo, Rashford and Fernandes, who recently penned a new four-year deal at United, could also walk out of Old Trafford in June.

“I can see a lot of players at Manchester United leaving if they appoint a new manager who is building for the long term,’ he told Paddy Power via Metro.co.uk.

“It gives Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo the opportunity to leave the club as a lot of things can change with a new manager.

“Fernandes is a special player and Manchester United need a player who can decide the game and create something in important moments.

“It’s hard when there are so many quality players and big names.

“It’s important to keep players like Bruno Fernandes to prepare properly for the future.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen with Harry Maguire either.”
