Manchester United confirm the release of 14 players, including Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia. The mix of veterans and academy products are now free to sign with new clubs.
Here is the full list of released players
However, Juan Mata, whose contract is set to expire this summer, has been offered a new contract to stay on at the club (per ESPN). The Spaniard’s form and first-team status has wavered this season, but he has still delivered on occastion for the Red Devils.
If Mata does stay, Solskjaer likely values his leadership as he moves toward a younger team. Daniel James’ arrival is the first of many expected deals for Man United this window, and if it’s any indication of whats to come, expect Solskjaer to build a young squad that will ideally last for years.
