Manchester United have told eight players the club should sell in the summer or risk going 30 years without winning the Premier League title like rivals Liverpool.

Manchester United last won the Premier League in 2013, Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season as Manchester United boss.

Darren Bent told talkSPORT: “The ones you keep are [David] de Gea, you keep Varane. You need a new right-back, I think.

“I don’t think [Scott McTominay] is good enough but he’s one of your own. Building-wise? Nope.

“I think Fred is a weird one because you have to say he’s been one in the last few weeks who has gone, ‘You know what? I’m up for this’. But I guess if you’re trying to start against and build a successful side, he might have to go.

“You keep Sancho. Ronaldo has got to to go. [Edinson] Cavani has got to go. [Martial] has got to go.

“Rashford is the one where, if the new manager fancies him, there’s something there. If he can get that best out of him then you keep him because he’s young.

“[Pogba] is going to go anyway, he’s on a free at the end of the season. If Manchester United have got any kind of aspirations [he should go].

“I love Pogba as a player, I really do, but Manchester United fans are becoming sick of saying, ‘we’re waiting for that consistency’, so he’d have to go.”

Meanwhile, Bent also said club captain Harry Maguire should be shown the door at Old Trafford, while Luke Shaw is someone they could potentially sell, too.

Asked how far Manchester United are away from just challenging for the Premier League title, the former striker replied: “Miles away.

“I said five years the other day but maybe eight years.”

And when summing up United’s long road to a 14th Premier League title, he said: “It could be 20 years [between titles].”

Liverpool’s 30-year title gap was then raised and, asked if it could be the same for the Red Devils, Bent added: “Maybe, you don’t know, because I’m sure when Liverpool were absolutely cleaning up, winning everything, they wouldn’t have said it would be 30 years.”
