Schweinsteiger, Januzaj part of NINE to be offloaded by Man Utd boss Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is set to clean out his squad by getting rid of as many as nine players.

Striker Wilson, who spent time with Brighton & Hove Albion last term, is also due for another loan with Premier League returnees Hull City and a host of Championship clubs keen.

The other players to be sent out by Mourinho are promising defenders Tom Fosu-Mensah, Paddy McNair, Tyler Blackett, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and striker Will Keane.
