Manchester Utd players ‘thrown out of the dressing’ by Erik ten Hag set to be offloaded by club.
Before Friday’s transfer deadline, Manchester United plans to transfer Teden Mengi to Luton Town of the Premier League.
The 21-year-old Mengi has previously had successful loan stints in the Championship with teams like Derby County and Birmingham City. Furthermore, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave him his senior United debut in the Europa League back in 2020.
Since moving up from the academy, the center-back has not played in a single league game, though. He is now prepared to relocate to Kenilworth Road.
The Manchester Evening News reports that Luton and United have reached an agreement for Mengi to join them permanently. On his side, Erik ten Hag is eager to make room in his team.
Moreover, Mengi was also one of five players who were allegedly “axed” from the locker room after a flurry of new acquisitions, including Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, and Andre Onana.
Back in September 2022, The Sun reported that after signing Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Antony, and Martin Dubravka, Ten Hag was obliged to cut relations with several current players.
According to the source, the first-team locker room at the AON Training Centre could only hold a maximum of 24 players. Meaning that Mengi, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe, Shola Shoretire, and Brandon Williams had to use the U23 facilities.
Additionally, according to The Mirror, Luton is also believed to be interested in Tuanzabe. Following his summertime release as a free agent, the 25-year-old trained with the Hatters to land a deal with Rob Edward’s team.
In addition to Shoretire, Jones, and Williams have also left Old Trafford, and a loan transfer has been mentioned for Shoretire. He made an impression on the League One team Bolton Wanderers in the second half of the previous campaign.
Ten Hag is working to get players off the books, but the Dutchman is also interested in adding Marc Cucurella and Sofyan Amrabat to his squad on possible loan moves.
