Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is ready to offload nine players at the end of the season.

According to a report on Daily Mail, the United boss is set to spearhead a massive clear-out in the 2018 summer transfer window.

After a 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, Mourinho told the press in his post match interview that he was unimpressed with the performance of the United players except Serbian Nemanja Matic.

Speaking after the match Mourinho said, “A few other guys I saw them scared to play. 'Please, Mister, take me from the pitch.”

The 53-year-old also criticised the performance of English left back Luke Shaw after the game.

He said, “Luke in the first half every time they come in his corridor, the cross was coming and a dangerous situation was coming so I was not happy with his performance.”

According to the report, it is expected that Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Anthony Martial depart Old Trafford at the end of the season.

This comes after Juventus met with the representatives of Martial, in a bid to bring the French man to Turin after the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

They are likely to be joined by Daley Blind, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Marouane Fellaini.

It is expected that Ed Woodward would team up with Mourinho to bring in more new faces to United despite spending £300million under the Portuguese coach.

Manchester United will return to action after the international break against Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday, March 31.
