Manchester United duo to leave Old Trafford in January?

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are not enjoying the smoothest of campaigns and will be looking to boost their squad in January. But the favourites to leave Old Trafford are already clear.

According to the Daily Mirror, Ashley Young and Anderson might be the first to be shown the door when the transfer market opens in few weeks.

Anderson had failed to prove his worth since arriving from Porto for £24m in 2007 while Young's been dropped by David Moyes since the Manchester derby in September.

Substitute striker Javier Hernandez might seek his way out as the striker needs more starts if he is to feature in Mexico's World Cup group this summer.

Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly in the race to sign the Mexican forward, but Moyes would rather he kept hold of his fourth choice striker.

The ex-Everton manager, who saw his side lose 1-0 to his former side last night, is set to land Leighton Baines in January.

The Scot bid for the defender unsuccessfully in the summer, when Manchester United requested the service of both him and Marouane Fellaini - but ended up only signing the Belgium international.
