According to Fabrizio Romano.

TFM looks to be off to Leverkusen.

Boubakary Soumaré and Max Aarons continue to be scouted.

Ole has said don't expect any more incomings in January, but 2 or 3 could leave.

TFM needs a fresh start. He certainly won't be missed by the fans as he has hardly featured for the club. His loan spells in the EPL have been and blighted with injuries. Hopefully it works out for him.

Hopefully Rojo, Romero and Jones get moves.

The rest may well get moves, but I’m not sure we could give Jones away tbh 🤣.

Tfm refused the new contract offer. Willams a far better player imo so its good all round. Not much off the wage bill. He was the worst paid in the squad at 18k a well reputedly.
Rojo romero and jones cost a combined 12m a year plus so it would be a nice wedge to save for players that make no contribution.
Id like jesse to get a move for his own sake. Nice lad and a real 100% type of guy. He will make a good player for the right team.

Ken I think Lingard would do well somewhere like Villa. They are a hard working team. Lingard isn’t at the level we need but nobody can fault his work rate on the pitch. Be good to see him get regular starts for someone after he scored some important goals for us.

There is a huge list of players the club need to move on. Romero, Rojo, Jones, TFM, Andreas Pereira and Lingard are the ones who desperately need to go.

Romero is the only one who is close to good enough and we still have two better keepers than him in Henderson and DDG.

Then we have a group of players such as Bailly, Shaw, Matic, Mata, James, Pogba, Fred, Martial, Cavani etc.

Players who are either getting older and will soon need replacing, don't want to be here or who it is questionable about them being good enough.

I wouldn't worry too much about TFM.

Shappy i wouldn't say we have two keepers better than Romero. Henderson maybe will become better and i wish he becomes world class. But i don't feel safe with him in goalposts, i felt always safe with Romero, he was always solid.

Don’t get too carried away with Henderson Shappy. He’s not looked convincing yet. He seems over eager to please. Romero is certainly the better goalkeeper, for now.

Agree on hendo. Ddg has dropped a level but still I have more peace of mind with him than hendo. He should have got another loan really.

As for jesse he’s lovable and he’s been through a lot, he’s a decent squad player but I wouldn’t begrudge him looking elsewhere for starting berth. Time will tell.

Thank goodness TFM has gone. Nothing made me more angry than when we sent him on to ‘save the day’ in the semi vs. Sevilla. Good riddance.
Agreed that Lingard to Villa would be good for both parties. 50m plus Lingard for Grealish. One can dream!
