The Red Devils are also still in the FA Cup and the Europa League as well as in the hunt for a spot in the Champions League next season.

Due to this success, it is thought that Ten Hag will be backed in the summer market, but he will have to clear some space in his squad for arrivals.

One of the players that Ten Hag has decided to sell according to Fichajes is club captain Harry Maguire.

The England international, 30, has fallen down the pecking order this season due to the form of Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.

Even when one of the defenders have been injured, Ten Hag has opted to play Luke Shaw at centre-back ahead of Maguire.

The second player on the chopping block is fellow central defender Victor Lindelof, 28.

The Swedish international, like Maguire, is out of favour and his exit could make way for a new defender to arrive at the club.

Lindelof has only featured 11 times in the Premier League this season and could be keen on a move away from Old Trafford to boost his game time.

The final player that could be sold is former Ajax star Donny van der Beek.

The midfielder, 25, has struggled to find his best form at the club since his arrival in 2020.

But after an injury cut his season short, it seems that Ten Hag thinks it would be best to cut ties with Van der Beek.
