Manchester United are steering ahead in the Premier League with the momentum of champions.
They definitely look stronger this year, with the squad bolstered by summer signings and youngsters coming up to the next level. The maturity of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverly has given United a solid base to rely upon.
We also shouldn't forget the addition of Ashley Young to the United midfield. In days when people were wondering who should replace Ryan Giggs in the midfield, Young has delivered some amazing performances.
Young defender Phil Jones has been another great addition to the squad. He not only knows how to defend, but steers clear of opponents to attack and score too.
In a nutshell, United's squad will surely add some extra wrinkles to the forehead's of opposing managers.
However, when there are improvements in one field, then there are some "not-needed" things left too.
Manchester United has a greater squad depth this season, but some fringe players are now unwanted and unneeded. Sir Alex Ferguson should look to sell off this surplus, as the money from the sales can be invested in better players for the future.
Here we take a look at the five players who may have to bid goodbye to Old Trafford this January.
