New Manchester United boss David Moyes is set to rip apart his squad in order to raise funds for new signings, the Metro reports.

Nani, Anders Lindegaard, and Anderson are the high-profile players placed on the transfer list, after all three fell out of favour, clocking up just 33 league appearances between them last season.

Fabio, who was relegated whilst on loan at QPR last season, is also free to leave Old Trafford, along with Federico Macheda, Bebe, Ryan Tunnicliffe, and Scott Wootton.

Moyes is hoping to land either Cesc Fabregas or Marouane Fellani to bolster his midfield, but could do with freeing up some of the huge wage bill before any transfers go ahead.

The first player out the door could be Nani, who is a target for Juventus, Roma, and Anzhi, and would be available for around £8m. After playing an average of 38 matches a season for the Red Devils, he appeared just 17 times last season, and came under criticism from fans during the season.

Anderson and Lindegaard are two that would also be able to command fees, the former is being touted around Portugal, while Lindegaard is rumoured to be happy to fight for his place with David de Gea.

Fabio - unlike brother Rafael - failed to impress under Sir Alex Ferguson's reign and was set to make his loan move to QPR permanent, until their relegation scuppered that move. Several clubs have expressed an interest in the versatile man, but it is understood United had not received a bid as of yet.

Bebe, who has not played for United in over two years, is free to move should he find a club, as the board have given up hope of recuperating any of the £7.6m shelled out for him.

Macheda shot to fame after scoring two important goals late against Aston Villa and Sunderland, but has failed to live up to the hype since. Both men have been left out of the squad for the pre-season tour of Asia, which is set to be the final nail in their coffin as Reds.

Moyes is also keen to link-up with Leighton Baines, who he managed at Everton, but any transfers now are subject to reducing the size of the squad.
