The true worth of Manchester United’s squad ahead of summer transfer window

5 min read

Manchester United face a number of decisions to make regarding the futures of first-team players this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in the process of rebuilding the Reds’ squad and may look to further strengthen in the upcoming transfer window.

But what is the value of the current squad as things stand? We have taken a look below, using figures from transfermarkt.co.uk. (Sergio Romero has not been included in this list as it has been confirmed he will be leaving the club in the summer.)

David De Gea (30)

In his tenth year as a United player, what the future holds for the Spaniard is unclear.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has welcomed the idea of a competition for the goalkeeper position between De Gea and Dean Henderson, with the club’s long-term stance in this department to be decided.

De Gea has not been at his best in recent times, reflected by a fall in value.

Value: £19.8million



New faces are likely to join the Manchester United squad during the summer transfer window.

Dean Henderson (24)

A breakthrough campaign for Henderson has seen him discussed as United’s new potential No.1.

Having shown his quality during two years on loan at Sheffield United, Solskjaer has rewarded his efforts with the opportunity to prove his talent at Old Trafford.

Value: £18m

Lee Grant (38)

The veteran keeper has not played for the club since November 2019 and is out of contract in the summer.

Value: £225,000

Harry Maguire (28)

The club captain has enjoyed a successful second season with the Reds, featuring in every single minute of Premier League action.

Maguire has been a reliable performer since arriving from Leicester City in 2019.

Value: £36m

Victor Lindelof (26)

Signed by the club in 2017, Lindelof has divided opinion since arriving at Old Trafford.

The Swedish defender signed a new contract in 2019, keeping him at the club until 2024.

Value: £21.6m

Eric Bailly (27)

Bailly has barely put a foot wrong while in a United shirt, but has struggled to overcome various injury issues during his time at the club.

Out of contract next summer and still struggling with injuries, this is highlighted in his fall in value.

Value: £13.5m

Axel Tuanzebe (23)

A product of the Reds’ academy, Tuanzebe has made the jump to first-team action.

Time spent on loan at Aston Villa proved to be a learning experience for the young defender, who has featured sporadically for United this term.

Value: £7.2m

Phil Jones (29)

Contracted to the club until 2023, Phil Jones has not made a single appearance for the club this campaign.

Much of his time at United has been overshadowed by injuries.

Value: £4.5m

Alex Telles (28)

Last year’s summer arrival has not had the desired impact many expected.

The re-emergence of Luke Shaw has prevented the Brazilian from featuring on a regular basis.

Value: £25.2m

Luke Shaw (25)

The unlikely hero of United’s season, Shaw has proved many people wrong with his performances.

His value has since increased as a result of his standout campaign.

Value: £22.5m

Brandon Williams (20)

Appearances have proved hard to come by for Williams on the back of his breakthrough season.

Competition for places in the full-back department has limited the 20-year-old to a handful of outings.

Value: £9m

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (23)

A regular at right-back for United, Wan-Bissaka is closing in on 50 appearances in all competitions for this campaign.

Value: £36m

Nemanja Matic (32)

No longer a crucial member of the first-team squad, Matic has mostly been deployed for reasons relating to squad rotation.

Value: £9m

Paul Pogba (28)

A big decision awaits United regarding the future of Paul Pogba. Now in his fifth season since re-signing for the club, the Frenchman is at somewhat of a crossroads.

Value: £54m

Donny van de Beek (23)

There were high hopes for the Dutch midfielder upon arrival from Ajax, but things haven’t worked out so far for the 23-year-old.

He has struggled for regular first-team minutes and it’s unclear how the board view his future at the club.

Value: £31.5m

Scott McTominay (24)

McTominay has taken his game to the next level this term, chipping in with goals from midfield to help the game.

It has been a strong year for the Scotsman, who appears to have a growing influence on the squad.

Value: £27m

Fred (28)

A mainstay in the Reds’ midfield, Fred has appeared in the majority of matches this season.

The Brazilian is under contract until 2023.

Value: £19.8m

Bruno Fernandes (26)

What a season it has been for Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese midfielder has been the club’s Player of the Season by some distance, winning games single-handedly at times.

His value has sky-rocketed in recent months.

Value: £81m

Juan Mata (32)

Limited appearances from the start these days, Mata has mainly been deployed as a substitute.

At 32, his peak years are now in the past.

Value: £5.4m

Marcus Rashford (23)

Rashford has led by example for the Reds once again.

He continues to grow in value as a result of performances on the pitch.

Value: £76.5m

Daniel James (23)

The Welsh winger has shown glimpses of quality when starring for the team, particularly in the Europa League.

Value: £16.2m

Mason Greenwood (19)

A player with a bright future ahead.

Greenwood has continued to be selected by Solskjaer, having made a lasting impression on the manager in 2019/20.

Value: £45m

Amad Diallo (18)

Though a late arrival to the 2020/21 season, Diallo has made an instant impact at the club.

The Ivorian opened his goalscoring account in United’s 1-1 draw with AC Milan at Old Trafford.

Value: £13.5m

Anthony Martial (25)

It has been a disappointing season for the French forward.

With seven goals in 36 appearances, Martial has been nowhere near his best.

Value: £45m

Edinson Cavani (34)

Cavani has demonstrated his class this season, but is not someone the club have been able to count on at all times.

His contract is up this summer.

Value: £6.3m
