Am I correct in thinking that:

Daley Blind
Luke Shaw
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson
Ander Herrera
Marouane Fellaini
Michael Carrick
Juan Mata
Will Keane
Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Are all out of contract by 1st July 2018?

Now maybe the kids and those coming to the end of their careers don't really matter but it seems a lot of players all at once and given some of the fees paid for them, a significant investment that could all too easily up and walk away for free.

I'm not 100% sure I'd keep any of them by the way but seeing as we so rarely seem to benefit from free transfers, it seems likely that even if only half of this list do go, they will be replaced by players bought in for large sums.

It seems that £50m+ is the going rate for an even half decent full back these days. I'd say we are all in agreement that we STILL need a couple of new faces to improve so do we expect a £300m+ summer in order to simply continue to challenge for a top 4 place and the hopes of a decent cup run?

A one year contract extension for Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, and Daley Blind was triggered by the club last week. I suspect additional players will be extended depending if the manager makes any signings or pre-agreements for the summer this month.

Daley Blind - will be sold
Luke Shaw - may be sold
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson - will be sold
Ander Herrera - 2019
Marouane Fellaini - wants to go
Michael Carrick - retiring
Juan Mata - 2019
Will Keane - plays for Hull
Zlatan Ibrahimovic - we will let him go

I can honestly see only 2-3 players there starting next season in the squad.

Thanks DM, by the way, never told you this before but you have the best name on the forum.
