With the pre-season US tour coming to an end after this Sunday’s game against Borussia Dortmund, outgoings are expected to accelerate.

Manchester United have a huge squad which is overflowing with senior players who won’t be content with a role lacking football.

Therefore it is highly expected that over the next few weeks there will be a string of outgoings at the club.

There is thought to be several players available to buy or take on loan, with United looking to bring in funds and reduce the wage bill.

Scott McTominay, Fred, Harry Maguire, Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek and Facundo Pellistri all are available in one way or another.

Two of these stars are now attracting interest from clubs which might be interesting challenges for them.

Real Sociedad target Donny

Van de Beek is a player who has never been in favour at Old Trafford, despite signing for £35.7million.

Joining three years ago, he never really got a fair shot in the team, and has also been horribly unlucky with injuries.

This is seen in his 60 appearances since signing three years ago, he has struggled, even under Erik Ten Hag.

Due to this, he has always seemed to be on his way out this summer, now according to Noticias de Gipuzkoa in Spain.

They report that La Liga side Real Sociedad are in talks with United for the loan signing of van de Beek, which would see an option to buy included.

Boca interested in Pellistri

Another player in desperate need of a season of first-team football is Pellistri.

The Uruguay international was told in January not to go on-loan as he would play, however he made just four Premier League appearances last season.

With first team football likely on his mind, United could be tempted to let him head on loan now.

Uruguayan journalist Sebas Giovanelli has suggested that a loan-move back to South America could be on the cards for Pellistri.

He said that Boca Juniors have “consulted Manchester United about a possible loan for Pellistri.

This move could make a lot of sense for all involved, however United are likely to insisted on Pellistri remaining in Europe for his development.
