Who Man Utd have sold since Solskjaer joined in 2018 and where they are now including Lukaku and unknown flops

MANCHESTER UNITED have sold plenty of players since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December 2018.

Some, like Romelu Lukaku have gone on to achieve great things while others have flopped into obscurity.

And here SunSport has taken a look at ten of the best and worst United departures since they appointed Solskjaer.

ROMELU LUKAKU

The Belgian left in a £67million move to Inter Milan in August 2019 – just eight months after the Norwegian took charge.

He smashed it at Inter and won Serie A before Chelsea brought him back to West London in a £97.5m deal this summer and he's quickly hit the ground running.

CHRIS SMALLING

The former Fulham centre-back spent 10 years on United's books between 2010 and 2020.

He initially left for Roma on loan in August 2019 before a £12m permanent transfer was agreed in October 2020 when he signed a three-year deal with the Italians.

ASHLEY YOUNG

Another who left for Italy, Young joined Inter Milan in a £1.5m deal in January 2020.

He became only the third Englishman in history to win Serie A last season but returned to England with Aston Villa on a free transfer this July – signing a one-year deal.

ANDER HERRERA

The Spaniard left on a free transfer for Paris Saint-Germain signing a five-year contract in July 2019.

Herrera won Ligue 1, the Coupe de France, the Coupe de la Ligue, the Trophée des Champions in his first season and was runner-up in the Champions League.

CAMERON BORTHWICK-JACKSON

The left-back, 24, spent 17 years on United's books from 2003 to 2020 but failed to make an impact on the first team.

After several loan spells, he eventually left for Oldham in June 2020 and now plays for Burton Albion.

TIMOTHY FOSU-MENSAH

Having signed the Dutchman from Ajax's youth academy, Fosu-Mensah was expected to be United's main right-back for years to come.

But he failed to make the grade and after loans at Crystal Palace and Fulham left permanently for Bayer Leverkusen in January.

JAMES WILSON

Another long-termer who failed to make the grade, Wilson, 25, joined United's academy in 2002.

But after several loans, the Scot left for Aberdeen in July 2019 and has since played for Salford City and is now with Port Vale.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ

One of United's worst transfers of all time.

The Chilean earned around £505,000-a-week at Old Trafford. He initially joined Inter on loan in August 2019 before signing a three-year deal on a free transfer a year later.

MARCOS ROJO

The left-back had an up and down time at United but struggled in the latter stages of his time there.

The Argentine was loaned out to Estudiantes in January 2019 before signing for South American giants Boca Juniors in February this year.

He is still as hot-headed as ever and was sent off in Sunday's Superclasico with River Plate.

MAROUANE FELLAINI

 The Belgian was an unpopular David Moyes signing.

And he lasted less than two months under Solskjaer agreeing a deal with Chinese side Shandong Luneng where he remains.
