When he was first brought in to manage Manchester United, Norwegian boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly drew up a list of nine players he wanted the club to sell. With six players having left since his arrival, are there more exits to come?

Upon his arrival in January 2019 as interim boss, Solskjaer reportedly told the club's board he wanted a major overhaul of the players he inherited from Jose Mourinho.
According to BBC Sport, he wanted nine players sold as he felt many changes needed to be made to the squad, despite getting off to a good start as United boss.
While nine players have, in fact, left the club since Solskjaer was brought in, three of them – James Wilson, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Joel Pereira – are likely to return once their loan deals at their respective clubs end.
Of last season's first-team players, Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez are technically away on loan, although neither star is expected to play for United again.
Italian defender Matteo Darmian was sold in the recent transfer window to Parma, while striker Romelu Lukaku joined Inter Milan for a fee of €65 million (R1 billion), and Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia both left the club on free transfers.
United are currently 12th on the Premier League table after eight matches, having won just twice. Sitting two points above the relegation zone, pressure is mounting on Solskjaer to produce results, with league leaders Liverpool their next opponent.
Which other players in the current senior squad do you think Solskjaer wanted gone? Let us know in the comments section below.
