You have to factor in the players' wages have been cut by 25% due to no CL football so it's certainly not high enough to deter decent level clubs from buying them.Martial, Bailly, Jones will be here next year because no one else will pay their wages.
Wan Bissaka, Teles will be here next year because they can still play a role (and no one else will pay their wages).
AC Milan almost signed Bailly in January and were willing to pay his wages but Utd refused to sell. Bailly has also wanted out for close to 2yrs now so he may probably accept a small wage cut simply because he's sick of being at Utd. Nobody will pay Martial's wages for sure hence why a loan deal will happen rather than a permanent like how Chelsea loan out Bakayoko every year. Jones stays I agree but it won't affect our transfer plans.
I do think Telles stays not because he has a role but because so many players(including Williams) are leaving and I don't see him being on that list till next year at least. I also think Alvaro Fernandez will be promoted so we'll have 3 LB options. Wan Bissaka however will leave 100% the moment Ten Hag came here the entire Utd media has reported that he's been told he won't be part of Ten Hag's plans whereas Dalot is. His wages also won't be an issue he was on around 70-80k before the 25% cut so he's probably within the 60k a week range now which is more than affordable to Crystal Palace who are in the market for a young RB and who have paid close to £60m for Benteke and Sakho in the past.
Believe it or not some of our players ARE sellable assets despite what you've been made to believe
