A host of Manchester United stars could be heading for the exit door this summer as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to overhaul his squad.

According to the Daily Mail, as many as four first team squad members could leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window, as well as Paul Scholes deciding to retire once more.

Brazilian midfielder Anderson is being linked with a move back to his homeland as Ferguson has finally given up on the player he brought to Manchester United from Porto in 2007.

Summer signing Alex Buttner has failed to set the world alight since his switch from Vitesse Arnhem and the report claims his situation will be evaluated once the season ends.

Manchester United will be looking at a long-term replacement for left-back Patrice Evra and Buttner has, as yet, been unable to show he is capable of it.

Another player that could be let go, according to the report, is goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, after he failed to oust David de Gea as Ferguson’s number one, despite being given a number of chances.

Striker Javier Hernandez has been linked with a move to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid as he has found playing time much harder to come by this season.

Manchester United have a potent attacking force in Hernandez, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Robin van Persie with other three seemingly preferred to Chicharito by Ferguson.
