Jose Mourinho has caused quite the stir at Manchester United after telling nine players that their immediate futures belong away from Old Trafford.
Whether it be on loan or permanently, the Portuguese has set about cleansing his squad in preparation for the new Premier League season.
Amongst the names to have held crunch talks with Mourinho are Bastian Schweinsteiger, Andreas Pereira, James Wilson and Adnan Januzaj.

However, when news emerged that Timothy Fosu-Mensah was told his future lies elsewhere, United fans were understandably furious.
The 18-year-old enjoyed a meteoric rise at the Theatre of Dreams last term, adoring himself to United's faithful and making right-back his own.
So much so that it was widely believed he would play a key role under Mourinho.
It would seem that United are about to complete a U-turn, though, with the Daily Mail reporting they will hold talks with Fosu-Mensah to secure his long-term future.
The Red Devils are keen to ward off interest across Europe in the Dutchman and ensure he stays next term to compete with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian for a starting role.
Doubts over Fosu-Mensah's future originated from reports that Mourinho ordered him to train away from the first-team and with the Under-21s, but these latest revelations suggest otherwise.
Fans will undoubtedly be delighted by the news, especially so amidst claims that Paul Pogba has completed a medical in Los Angeles and will be announced as a United player imminently.
According to the same source, the Frenchman has agreed a contract worth £290,000-per-week and will inherit the vacant No.6 shirt.
This follows on from news that a £112 million deal had been struck between United and Juventus, with £20 million of that sum heading Mino Raiola's way, including an extra £4 million from the Old Lady.
Taking all of the above into account, here's what the Red Devils' starting line-up could look like when the 2016/17 season kicks off next month:
David de Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw; Pogba, Morgan Schneiderlin; Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan; Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Good luck to United's title rivals - they're going to need it.
