Manchester United fans want five stars to leave Old Trafford

Manchester United fans want to see Robin van Persie, Jonny Evans, Radamel Falcao, Nani and Javier Hernandez all leave Old Trafford this summer.

This is according to a survey conducted by the Manchester Evening News, which saw 15,000 fans respond.

A whopping 69 per cent of supporters believe Van Persie should be sold following a second disappointing season, while more than 80 per cent want to see the back of Falcao, whose loan deal expires at the end of the season.

Falcao set to leave United

Falcao scored two goals for Colombia against Bahrain on Thursday afternoon - half the number of goals he has managed to score since completing his season-long loan move to Old Trafford at the start of September.

United would need to pay £43.5 million to sign Falcao on a permanent deal this summer, but recent reports suggest the Premier League giants have no desire to sign the South American on a permanent deal.

Interestingly enough, though, it’s understood that the likes of Juventus, Liverpool and even Chelsea are considering signing Falcao on loan this summer.

Van Persie struggling for form and fitness

As for Falcao’s fellow striker, Van Persie, it comes as no real surprise that many Manchester United fans have lost faith in the Dutch star.

Van Persie, now 31, will always hold a special place in the hearts of United supporters for his exploits during the 2012-13 campaign, but he is no longer the world-class striker who arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal almost three years ago.

That United have performed significantly better in recent weeks without the injured Van Persie, whose contract expires in the summer of 2016, suggests there’s a chance they might attempt to cash-in on the ageing striker this summer.

Evans may have played his last United match

Evans, meanwhile, is currently serving a six-match suspension for spitting at Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse.

That might be the last time we see the Northern Ireland international in a Manchester United shirt, with the Red Devils reportedly considering a move for Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels.

Nani, Hernandez and loans out

And as for Nani and Hernandez, who are currently on loan at Sporting Lisbon and Real Madrid respectively, it seems United fans lost faith in that particular duo long before the start of this season.

The MEN survey also revealed that the majority of fans believe Paddy McNair, Andreas Pereira, Tyler Blackett and Jesse Lingard should all be sent out on loan next season.
