MANCHESTER UNITED may have beaten Newcastle in the Premier League at the weekend, but the crisis at Old Trafford continues to deepen.
Reports have now emerged that SEVEN players are ready to quit the club.
Jose Mourinho is under pressure at United after a series of poor results and a public bust-up with Paul Pogba.
And the Daily Mail suggest the World Cup winner is one of many looking for an Old Trafford exit.
Antonio Valencia – who was dropped for the 3-2 win against Newcastle – is another looking to leave United.
Ander Herrera, Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata are also unhappy, according to the reports.
Furthermore, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial are reluctant to sign new contracts at Manchester United with the current situation ongoing.
The Red Devils are also desperate to tie down David de Gea who is in the final year of his current agreement with the club.
The Spaniard has been in talks with United officials since January.
United went 2-0 down to Newcastle at the weekend with Mourinho under intense pressure.
But the Red Devils were able to turn the match round thanks to goals from Mata, Martial and Alexis Sanchez.
It means United go into the international break in eight place, seven points behind Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool at the summit of the Premier League.
And Romelu Lukaku is eager for the Red Devils to continue their momentum after the international break.
“I can go to Belgium with a cool feeling [after winning],” he said.
“But at the end of the day, we are not where I want us [United] to be, so I’m going to go to Belgium, hopefully do well for my country, but knowing that I have two important games for my team coming back.
“I’m a really bad loser, so coming into the game [against Newcastle], I really was anxious, because I wanted to win.
”Thank God we won the game and now the important thing with the international break is that nobody gets injured. When we come back, we have two important games where, if we have good results, we can move forward.“
