Manchester United reported departures: Stick or sell?

Football News

Its today been reported by the Daily Star that David Moyes is considering selling a quadrate of stars at Manchester United. 

If reports are to be believed, Nani, Anderson, Ashley Young and Rafael could all depart Old Trafford in the near future. 

But, should Moyes stick with the quadrate of players? 

Let's take a look: 


Inconsistent Nani continues to frustrate the Manchester United faithful. Booed off against Stoke City this past weekend, the future of the Portuguese winger again looks uncertain, despite only just signing a new long term deal at the Theatre of Dreams. 

However, talent wise, Nani is one of United's best wingers and on his day can produce magic. A scorer of some quite brilliant strikes, the United winger can deliver on the biggest stage. 

If he can produce some big performances in the near future and start showing some consistency, then he does have a future. 



Brazilian midfielder Anderson arrived at Old Trafford at the same time as Nani. And, like the Portuguese winger, Anderson has also struggled with consistency at United. 

In and out of the team, the Brazilian has never quite found his feet at the Theatre of Dreams. 

When given opportunities this season he hasn't been able to take them. In addition he doesn't look fit enough and just isn't good enough to be in the heart of the Red Devils' side. 


Ashley Young

Ashley Young is another United winger who has struggled for form and consistency. Some woeful performances this season and terrible dives have really put his future up in the air and perhaps he has to admit defeat at United. 

He looked sharp in the Capital One Cup against Norwich Tuesday evening, but is he really good enough to become a regular on the wings at Old Trafford? 

Moyes needs to sell and let Wilfried Zaha and Adnan Januzaj battle it out for his place.



If Moyes really is considering selling Rafael, he should certainly think twice.

The Brazilian wing-back has a bright future ahead of him and is definitely good enough to compete for a place at Old Trafford. 

The United boss should make the star his No.1 right-back as his pace down the flanks is a great threat and he continues to improve defensively.
