Manchester United will open fire on other signings until one or two breakups are sanctioned.
Combining plans for the Premier League season, Erik ten Hag and the recruiting team have accepted Andre Onana, Mason Mount and Rasmus Hojlund to the club. Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Scott McTominay and the rarely used Donny van de Beek are among those who could be used to raise funds to splash out elsewhere.
However, development and progress in thinking are also at the forefront. There are a few stars, young and old, who could benefit from a rental move from Old Trafford during this campaign.
Currently, Will Fish is the only ‘senior’ departure from this group after moving to Hibernian on a temporary deal. As the countdown to September 1 continues, there are five more people to follow;

Alvaro Fernandez: The young Spanish fullback, who made 39 appearances in the Championship with Preston last season, has dipped his toes in top-flight football and will be desperate to further his experience in this campaign. However, any bid on Fernandez could be delayed as Tyrell Malacia is currently injured.

Dean Henderson: Definitely another credit move, right? In the current situation, a permanent departure from Old Trafford has yet to happen, and the last thing Henderson wants—or deserves—is to spend another 12 months packing his gloves on the bench. A loan with an obligation to buy was initially discussed with Nottingham Forest, who appeared to be willing to re-sign the Academy graduate. However, as the clock ticks towards the final day, the goalkeeper will ensure that everything goes according to plan when it comes to determining his future.
Hannibal Mejbri: The Tunisian playmaker, who came under Borussia Dortmund’s attention earlier in the summer, saw his name linked to Feyenoord, AS Monaco and Premier League newcomers Luton Town, and the market is still very open. Switching to any of the above will help underline his credentials after he shone during a loan spell at Birmingham City in the Championship last season – during which time Hannibal has made 38 appearances.
Making of Pellistri: Similar to Fernandez at fullback, Uruguay forward Pellistri is one step closer to the first team than he could be. Fresh off his own credit success for Sunderland in the last season, Amad’s injury has not only strengthened his immediate chances, but Pellistri is among the standouts this summer. While his playing time has been limited since his transfer from Penarol three years ago, one or two cameos last season have not gone unnoticed by United fans. Is it finally his time?
Shola Shoretire: It seems a century has passed since the attacking midfielder made his debut for United at the age of 17 and only four days later became the youngest player ever to represent him in European cups. Shoretire, still only 19 years old, has since added three trips to that tally. He spent time at League One neighbors Bolton Wanderers throughout 2022/2023 and has apparently made a jump in the United standings by other contenders.
