Bruno Fernandes transfer ‘will see two midfielders leave Man Utd’

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could let two players leave on loan following the £67million signing of Bruno Fernandes.

Youngsters James Garner and Dylan Levitt are in need of first-team opportunities to continue their development, but have found chances harder to come by after the Portuguese put pen to paper in January.

World Cup winner Paul Pogba has recently returned from an ankle injury, and is set to compete for a place in the first team once the Premier League resume.

Meanwhile Fred has been in the form of his life for the Red Devils, and Scott McTominay has also been progressing.

Garner and Levitt both came through the youth system at United and are both highly rated, but need regular football if they are to improve.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer is happy to let them leave temporarily if the right club comes calling.

Solskjaer's biggest headache once football returns will be finding a way to play Pogba and Fernandes alongside each other in the same team.

Wayne Rooney recently suggested utilising the Frenchman in a deeper position, but with the freedom to go forward when the ball is played out wide.

The Derby star explained Frank Lampard operated in a similar position during his career, and it made him almost unplayable.

Rooney told The Times: "I would love to see Paul Pogba playing deeper and attacking the box the moment the ball went wide. He would score more goals and with his good feet, his athleticism, he would be an absolute nightmare.

"I would use him in that role – it's one where, if he developed in it, he could be incredible."
