You kind of answered your own question thereThe last time we actually managed to ship off plenty of players was Van gaal second season where he let go Nani, Chicharito, Rafael, Janujaz etc. Ironically the only time we actually managed to ship off players was the kind of players we could have done without selling.
The main reason it’s difficult is their high wages combined with underperforming and injuries.
Phil Jones has been poor while playing, injured a lot and has a very big weekly wage packet. It’s pretty self explanatory that he is difficult to shift. We have plenty of players in the high wages while underperforming bracket. Add injury prone on top and you have the answer.
