Michael Carrick is the most prominent name to have ended his time at United so far due to his retirement, with Marouane Fellaini set to leave when his contract expires. Matteo Darmian is involved in protracted negotiations to return to Italy and may be followed by Daley Blind. If those two departures deplete United’s left back resources then it’s still an area where the club are still both heavily stocked and in the hunt for a superior star name.
Alex Sandro continues to be that name though there is some suggestion that Diogo Dalot, who became the first player to sign for the club this summer a couple of weeks ago, may feature on the left with current first choice Ashley Young.
All of which means it could prove a frustrating time for Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, whose loan spells since his impressive first team breakthrough have unfortunately not helped his chances of a senior career at Old Trafford.
Sunderland owner Stewart Donald told the Roker Report that the club were set to sign the United defender on a season long loan deal. The player’s loan spells at Wolves and Leeds have been unsuccessful and with his career at a crossroads you would have to think that he will view this spell away as an opportunity to try and get a permanent deal elsewhere.
