Manchester United today announced the departure of 11 players from the club.
It was already known that Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Lee Grant were to leave at the end of the month.
But five academy stars were added to the roster of those that were released at the end of their contracts by the Old Trafford outfit.
“D’Mani Mellor, Reece Devine and Connor Stanley received support in finding new clubs”, official website countries.
“Mellor has only made one first-team appearance, playing in the European league against Astana in 2019, to make sure he appears in every age group for United.”
United also confirmed the departure of goalkeeper Paul Woolston, the hapless 23-year-old who announced his retirement in April due to hip problems.
The last name on the list was Paul McShane, who at 35 became the oldest player to join the Under 23s when he returned to the club from Rochdale last summer.
The club explained that “McShane will continue his role as career coach after his retirement.”
The article also confirmed that Martin Svidersky had rejected the offer of a new contract and is expected to leave, with Dylan Levitt’s contract being extended for another year.
Levitt enjoyed a successful loan spell with Dundee United last season.
The twelve, including Svidersky, are unlikely to be the last to leave the club this summer, and the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly, Dean Henderson, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are rumored to be all looking for new pastures.
Spurs also tackled the Marcus Rashford case this week, but they are said to be eager to stay at United and fight for his spot under new manager Erik ten The Hague.
