Louis van Gaal has been active in the transfer windows since taking over as Manchester United manager.

The Red Devils boss has spent over £200 million since taking the reigns at Old Trafford in 2014 and has seen 26 first-team players leave the Theatre of Dreams.

With the January transfer window fast approaching, more comings and goings are expected in the north-west and, via the Mirror, United fans have had their say on who they'd like to see leave the club.

Supporters have named just two players they'd like to see depart in the mid-season transfer window. And there is also an interesting insight into Wayne Rooney's current popularity.


One, unsurprisingly, is out-of-favour goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who was not given a squad number or involved in the team photo following a fall-out with Louis van Gaal.

Only 20.5 per cent of fans would like to see the Spaniard stay and it seems they will get their wish with the former Barcelona goalkeeper looking likely to move on in the new year.


The other player was Marouane Fellaini. It seems that, despite a stellar 2014-15 season to help the Red Devils finish fourth, he has failed to convince fans he is Manchester United quality.

Only 38.4 per cent of supporters wanted to see the big Belgian stay at Old Trafford. Maybe they believe the sale of Fellaini would convince Louis van Gaal to play more attacking football.


Every other player in the United squad is safe, for now, but captain Rooney's popularity has plummeted following his poor start to the season.

The England skipper has scored just two goals in 11 Premier League games and has come in for considerable flak on social media.

Only 67.5 per cent want to see Rooney stay, that puts him below the likes of Patrick McNair, Phil Jones and James Wilson.
