Gareth Southgate to Man Utd plunges future of eight stars including Harry Kane into doubt


Jadon Sancho

Currently rebuilding his career on loan at Borussia Dortmund, Sancho has been exiled from the United team since falling out with Ten Hag. A new manager stepping in to replace the Dutchman - not to mention one who gave Sancho 23 caps for England - can only be a good thing from the winger's perspective.

Mason Greenwood

With a future still shrouded in uncertainty, Greenwood is spending this season at Getafe after a controversial off-the-pitch saga. Sir Jim has said he will reconsider United's reluctance to welcome the 22-year-old back into the first team, and Southgate's introduction could help to move things along for the once-capped England international.

Harry Kane

The Three Lions' leading scorer still has the all-time Premier League goals record to break, suggesting he will one day return to England from Bayern Munich. Southgate's appointment could be the sign he needs to jump ship as the German giants splutter to the end of a rare season without silverware.

Harry Maguire

Southgate has remained fiercely loyal to the 31-year-old even when his form at club level has left plenty to be desired. A United exit remains a serious possibility this summer if Ten Hag stays, but the tables would surely turn with a change in management.

Jarrad Branthwaite

United are already believed to have started putting in the groundwork to sign the Everton man this summer, and Southgate recently made it clear what he thinks of Branthwaite by including him in his latest England squad for the first time.

Lisandro Martinez

Another Ten Hag acquisition from Ajax, Martinez has gone down a storm with supporters. But his compact frame at centre-back makes him an acquired taste, and whether Southgate is a fan remains to be seen.
