Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, and Edinson Cavani, as well as fourth-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant, are all out of contract next month, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Last year, the club exercised the one-year option in Mata, Cavani, Pogba, and Lingard’s contracts.
Matic declined the option of an additional year and announced his exit last month.
Goalkeeper Ondrej Mastny, fullback Reece Devine, midfielders Charlie Wellens and Connor Stanley, and forwards D’Mani Mellor and Mateo Mejia are all out of contract at the academy level.
Mejia and Wellens, both 19, have one-year options on their contracts, although it’s uncertain whether either will be used.
As the final month of Dylan Levitt’s contract approaches, it’s unclear whether United will activate the one-year extension under his contract.
On Wednesday, Erik ten Hag went from Amsterdam to London on a private jet to meet with Manchester United’s management and begin the process of rebuilding the club’s underperforming squad.
Ten Hag and his agents arrived in the capital and immediately went to United’s Mayfair headquarters to meet with chief executive Richard Arnold and football director John Murtough.
Former Ajax manager ten Hag will meet with United’s hierarchy over the following few days before traveling to Crystal Palace on Sunday to see the Eagles’ final game of the season.
Ten Hag wants to see United play in person so he can decide which players should stay and which should go, as well as which parts of the squad he needs to reinforce ahead of the new season.
The 52-year-old Dutchman is unlikely to meet United’s players before the game at Selhurst Park, but he is anticipated to meet them thereafter before the group departs for the summer.
