Paul Merson believes that some of Manchester United’s current players would be glad to leave the club this summer.

The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a number of players this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his Manchester United squad with the right signings.

It remains to be seen how many new additions the Red Devils will make this summer as Mourinho aims to build a side capable of challenging Manchester City’s dominance of the Premier League next season.

But there are also bound to be a number of exits at Old Trafford as the Red Devils look to reshuffle their squad ahead of Mourinho’s third season in charge at the club.

And former Arsenal star Merson feels that there are plenty of Manchester United stars who would gladly leave the club this summer because they don’t look happy under Mourinho.

Speaking on The Debate on Sky Sports, Merson said: “If a lot of Man United players are sold this summer, I don’t think they will be leaving Man United crying.

“A lot of them don’t look like they enjoy their football at all.”

Manchester United finished as runners-up in the Premier League this season in their highest ever finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

The Red Devils appointed Mourinho as Louis van Gaal’s permanent successor at Old Trafford back in May 2016.
