Erik ten Hag's side haven't had the easiest start to the 2023/24 campaign both on and off the pitch, and face elimination from the Champions League at the group stage.
After Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle, United had lost six Premier League games out of 14 this season.
Several reporters were then banned from Ten Hag's pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday's clash against Chelsea over a number of reports, one of which claimed that 50 per cent of the dressing room had turned on the manager.
United players responded with their best performance of the season in the 2-1 win over the Blues, which saw Ten Hag's side record 28 shots at goal.
Antony and Rasmus Hojlund were both impressive, with the former receiving an embrace from match winner Scott McTominay at full time.
McTominay himself has had something of a resurgence at Old Trafford this season. The Scotland international was expected to leave the club this summer, but won back his place in the team and is the side's top Premier League goalscorer this term, with five goals.
Three of his team-mates, however, have reportedly been made available for transfer ahead of the January transfer window.
The Independent claim that United will consider offers for Jadon Sancho, with the England winger having been exiled by Ten Hag following a public disagreement over his training performances.
It is also reported that Raphael Varane and Casemiro could leave the club, with the pair having been signed from Real Madrid in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
All three players are among the club's highest earners, but have not featured regularly under Ten Hag in recent months.
Varane has fallen behind Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and even Luke Shaw in the United pecking order, with Maguire taking over the right-footed France defender's role on the right side of central defence.

It is claimed that Casemiro, who has played just three times for United since October due to injury, is 'seeking different experiences at this stage in his career'.
Should any or all three players leave Old Trafford, it would give Ten Hag much-needed room to bring in new players, with FFP a key concern for United when it comes to transfer spending.
But if United can keep up the performance levels they showed against Chelsea, you sense the need for new signings in the short-term may be slightly reduced.
