Manchester United are ready to listen to offers for six first team players as they look to raise funds for summer transfers.

The Red Devils will welcome bids for Alexis Sanchez, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Diogo Dalot.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his squad at Old Trafford with Jadon Sancho thought to be their number one target.

The Norwegian has ushered seven players out the exit door since taking over from Jose Mourinho 18 months ago.

And it looks as if his reshuffle will continue in the coming months as he plots United's rise, reports the Metro.

Solskjaer has been very specific about the type of player he wants at the club as he looks to implement a fast-paced attacking style.

Two of the aforementioned six players, Sanchez and Smalling, have both spent the year away in Italy on loan.

Roma are understood to be keen on making Smalling's move to the capital a permanent one.

The likes of Jones, Rojo and Dalot have all fallen down the pecking order with Solskjaer largely sticking to a familiar back four.

Although a new central defender to partner Harry Maguire is thought to be on the United manager's shortlist.

But despite those plans executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has warned against expecting big deals this summer as clubs feel the financial affects of the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: "We have always believed that our commercial model gives us greater resilience than most clubs and we are grateful for the enduring support of our commercial partners in helping us achieve that.

"However, nobody should be under any illusions about the scale of challenge facing everyone in football and it may not be ‘business as usual’ for any clubs, including ourselves, in the transfer market this summer."
