According to The Sun, Mourinho wants to make a total of £125 million (R2.1 billion) from sales in this window, which opened on 17 May. Anthony Martial is reportedly the most high-profile expected departure, with United believed to have put a £70 million (R1.2 billion) price tag on the Frenchman's head.

Martial scored nine Premier League goals and assisted another five strikes in the 2017/18 campaign, but last found the back of the net in January and was often named on the bench, especially since Alexis Sanchez joined the club.

Luke Shaw is another name high on Mourinho's reported axe list after again widely failing to impress. He started only three league games since February, and United are understood to be hopeful of receiving £25 million (R422 million) for the left-back, whose contract expires next year.

In addition, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind could also reportedly leave Old Trafford soon, with the Red Devils said to be holding out for about £14 million (R236 million) for their services. Darmian made only eight Premier League appearances in 2017/18, starting just five all season, while Blind made Mourinho's starting line-up in just four league games all season.
