REVEALED! – Six players to leave Manchester United in January as a result of Champions League exit

Six players could leave Manchester United when the January transfer window opens with Erik ten Hag looking to trim his squad after their Champions League elimination.

A 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night ensured United finished bottom of their group, failing to qualify for the Europa League in the process.

ESPN report a number of departures could be on the cards with only the Premier League and FA Cup left to play for next year.

Jadon Sancho is expected to leave next month having been exiled from the first-team squad back in August after his public falling out with the manager.

January represents the last chance for United to collect a transfer free for their second-longest serving player.

Raphael Varane and Casemiro could also leave with United expecting interest in the pair. Reports have suggested World Cup winner Varane has fallen out with ten Hag with the defender starting just his first match in 11 games against Bayern this week.

Casemiro, currently working his way back from injury and having struggled for form this season, is reportedly contemplating his future at Old Trafford.

Sergio Reguilon meanwhile joined the club on loan from Tottenham in September with talks set to take place with Spurs over a break clause in that deal that would allow him to return to north London in January.

The Spaniard has started seven matches this season and United may seek to retain his services with Luke Shaw picking up a fresh injury this week with Tyrell Malacia not expected to return until the new year
