With just over a fortnight remaining of the summer transfer window, it's widely expected Jose Mourinho will make one or two further changes to his Manchester United squad.
Further additions might be unlikely having signed Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba for a combined fee of £146 million, but the same can't be said for potential departures.
Paddy McNair and Donald Love signed for Sunderland last week in a combined deal worth £5.5 million, with Adnan Januzaj soon following suit on loan.

One player whose future has been in doubt ever since Mourinho took over at Old Trafford is the much-maligned Marouane Fellaini.
Three years on from his big-money arrival at the Theatre of Dreams and the Belgian is yet to prove his worth and instead continues to frustrate.
However, for those hoping Fellaini will be sold this summer, it would seem Mourinho has a different plan for him entirely.
In an interview with MUTV, as relayed by Manchester Evening News, Mourinho explained how he wants to turn the 28-year-old into a fan favourite after years of abuse.
He said: "With Fellaini, I always have the feeling that he was not loved by the general Red people.
"But, if he plays like he's playing now, they have to love him because he’s being so important for us."
And it would seem Fellaini is willing to work hard to repay the faith shown in him.
"Like everybody, I want to start so I’m happy to start today (at Bournemouth) and show my quality and show the manager what I can do," the Belgium international added.
"I hope we will see more goals this season but we have to keep working and keep improving every game and every session.
"The manager is helping bring this feeling of aggression and character that we need to win games which is very important.
"We have to improve every game if we want to do something well this season and we want to prove to everyone that Manchester United are back."
The Red Devils began their Premier League campaign with a routine victory over Bournemouth on Sunday after Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata - who also has Mourinho's trust, according to the Daily Record's Duncan Castles - found the back of the net.
