For the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, getting a few deals over the line over the next few weeks will be vital for Mourinho…
Expectedly, the majority of the attention of the Man Utd faithful in the Tavern has been on who might be joining the club over the next few weeks – but Mourinho must also ensure that he is placing enough attention on clearing out the deadwood in his squad.
Ever the divisive manager, there are a number of players in the Man Utd first team squad that haven’t had much of a look in under Mourinho – and whilst Morgan Schneiderlin has already departed, he almost certainly won’t be the last Man Utd man to leave the club.
Memphis Depay is a player that has often been on the fringes of the Man Utd first team since his arrival, and it would appear as though his departure is looking likely. According to the Daily Mail, Lyon are keen on the Dutch winger – and have had a £13 million move rejected for him.
A departure certainly hasn’t been ruled out, though, with the Daily Mail noting that Mourinho is very keen to sell the winger – with £17.5 million likely enough to get the deal done.
The Man Utd fans have been disappointed by Memphis Depay since his arrival, with the highly-rated Dutch ace expected to come to the Premier League and dominate after a stellar season in the Dutch top flight – but it was not to be.
After 33 league appearances and just 2 goals, it would appear as though Depay’s time at Old Trafford is running out…
