Manchester United set to axe three players to fund EFL player transfer deal

Published

on

Manchester United are reportedly keen to sell Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling this summer in order to fund a move for Swansea City defender Joe Rodon.

Rodon has been in impressive form this season for the Welsh side, prompting interest from a number of clubs in the Premier League, including United with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to make a summer move.

The Red Devils are said to be growing closer and closer to seal a deal for the highly rated defender, who is claimed to have been recommended to Solskjaer by Wales national team boss Ryan Giggs.

A recent report claimed that United could be willing to sell Jones, Rojo and Smalling to make way for Rodon, and The Mirror now confirms that Solskjaer is ready to sell all three.

Rodon, 22, has developed through the various youth teams at Swansea, gaining first team football last season for the club after a short loan spell with Cheltenham Town.

The young defender has already gained four international caps for Wales after playing for both the U20 and U21 sides, respectively.

The Verdict

If United do sell all three of those established players to make way for Rodon, it will be a massive statement and put pressure on the youngster’s shoulders right from the off.

The youngster has been more than impressive this term, and a move to the Premier League is very much the next step to take in his career.
