Jamie Redknapp: Jose Mourinho will sell these three Man United players

Jamie Redknapp believes Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata will all leave if Jose Mourinho is appointed

Jamie Redknapp believes Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata all face uncertain futures under Jose Mourinho ahead of the manager’s anticipated appointment at Manchester United.

The veteran England midfielder is set to become a free agent in the summer when his current Red Devils contract expires at the end of the season.

Fellaini has been a controversial figure at United since David Moyes signed the Belgium international in a £27m deal from Everton in 2013.

Mata moved to United in a £37.1m deal from Chelsea in January 2014 after Mourinho deemed the playmaker surplus to requirements at the west London club.

Former Spurs midfielder Redknapp believes Mourinho will look to sell the midfield trio if the 53-year-old takes over the reins at Old Trafford.

“Juan Mata has done well for United and scored some important goals — not least in the FA Cup final — but Mourinho let him go at Chelsea and I wouldn’t have thought the Spaniard is in his plans,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.

“Michael Carrick is not getting any younger, and while he did well in the FA Cup final, Marouane Fellaini is not good enough for United.”
