Given frustrations about game time as it is, Bailly, Jones and Tuanzebe could be set for exits anyway, which is possibly the reason why United are moving so quickly for a new centre-half.
Whether it’s Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino or someone else, they would undoubtedly welcome starting next season with Varane, Akanji, Maguire and Lindelof as their first team central defenders.
