Manchester United are gearing up to relieve five players from Old Trafford for a combined fee of £100million as they plan to raise funds for Jose Mourinho's summer transfer spree.

Players on the list are Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind.

United have made progress under Mourinho this season but would do more in the transfer market in order to challenge rivals Manchester City next season.

Mourinho was reported to be set to sell a handful of players this summer and was convinced that a mass relieve was required.

A source at Old Trafford told The Sun, Uk, that Mourinho has been told by Manchester United chiefs that he will need to raise cash to spend on signings this summer, with around £130m available to him before sales.

The newspaper claimed United are targeting huge returns for multiple players, with the club hoping to sell Shaw for at least, £28m.

Smalling, who has also endured a frustrating season for the Red Devils, will reportedly be sold for £25m, while United want Darmian and Daley Blind to leave for £14m each. Herrera could go for £27m.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already left the club, joining MLS club LA Galaxy after his United contract was terminated by mutual consent.
