Manchester United: Keep or Sell? (2)

Michael Carrick

A fantastic servant who enjoyed the best season of his career for United last year. However every player has a best by date and we're seeing that with 35-year-old Carrick. Regrettably, should be one of those axed in the summer. SELL.

Morgan Schneiderlin

A mixed bag in his first year at the club. Not sure he's up to it but probably deserves another season to show his true potential. I think we can do better but hard to judge at this stage. KEEP (for now)

Bastian Schweinsteiger

Injury prone, unfit and struggling with the pace and physicality of the English top flight. Seemed like a good idea at the time but past his best and easy to see why Bayern got rid. We should do the same. SELL.

Marouane Fellaini

Has shown glimpses of the player he was at Everton but has generally failed to convince and his style of play is ill suited to what United fans want. Far from popular. SELL

Ander Herrera

Two years into his Old Trafford career and I'm still not sure what he brings to us. Lightweight, often out of position and not enough influence and authority when it matters. Loves the club with a passion. Flashes of quality but has failed to convince the fans or Van Gaal. SELL

Juan Mata

Not had his best season but he cannot be held accountable. The mercurial Spaniard lacks pace but is one of this side's few match winners and has moments of magic in his locker. Class. KEEP

Jesse Lingard

A breakthrough campaign for the  Warrington youngster. Still learning his trade and games sometimes can pass him by but has generally been impressive.  Credit to  LVG for giving him his chance. KEEP

Adnan Januzaj

So much early promise and potential but has fallen out of favour under Van Gaal amid reports about his attitude. Difficult to say whether he would flourish under another  manager but we can do better. Should cash in. SELL


A difficult first season for the £25 million purchase from PSV. Again, flashes of brilliance but has struggled for consistency and his attitude has been poor. That said, he is young and clearly has bags of talent so probably deserves another season before we can judge. KEEP.

Andreas Pereira

Who? The out of favour Brazilian is not even in the Under 21 side and has fallen down the pecking order since making his debut last season. Clearly talented. May benefit from going on loan. KEEP (loan deal elsewhere)
