Manchester United have cruised in the Premier League this season and are expected to be crowned champions in the next couple of games.

However there is concern about the squad strength and experts fear that Alex Ferguson gets the best out of average players and his successor might not be as astute and hence the club could really struggle after his departure.

For that not to happen the club needs to replace a number of average players with better players this summer and these are the players that should make way.

Patrice Evra

The left-back has had a host of disappointing performances over the past few years at United. 

And although Alexander Buttner's transfer in the summer provided the motivation Evra needed, he has failed to show consistency this season.  

Perhaps the Frenchman should call it a day at Old Trafford before the Old Trafford faithful get on his back. 

Antonio Valencia

The Ecuador international became a crowd favourite since his switch from Wigan, but he has since been found out by defenders and has had little or no impact this season. 

He seems to be playing without any confidence and United would do well to get rid of the winger in the summer. 


The Brazilian has failed to establish himself in the first team and has been rocked by fitness and weight issues since joining in 2007. The former Porto man was seen as a real coup for United but he has failed to replicate his form with the Portuguese club. 

The club should sell the player and look for better replacement in the centre of the park. 

Ashley Young

The Winger had a blistering start to his Old Trafford career through some dazzling displays, his form has gone south since that time.

He has been frustrating time and again in crucial matches and some might argue that given time he can develop at United, however I think he would be better suited at a mid-level club.
