Manchester United Football Club take on Reading tomorrow, as Mourinho’s players look to defend their FA Cup crown. It’s been a busy month for the Red Devils, and it looks as though that is set to continue as the transfer period is now in full swing.
In his pre-match press conference, Jose was asked about the situation of both Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin, who haven’t really featured in the squads recently. The gaffer told reporters that he will allow them both to leave Old Trafford, but only if the right offer comes in; which is something they are still waiting for.
“Their situation is exactly the same. I will allow them to leave the club, I will allow them to leave if the right offer comes and until this moment, no. We are waiting for something that a couple of weeks ago looked 100 percent. In this moment, it looks like zero percent because we don’t have any offer that is close to the quality the players have.” ManUtd.com quote the manager as saying.
At the end of the day, both of them came in with massive potential in my opinion, but neither has come anywhere close to doing anything of note on a consistent basis.
First up, we have Memphis Depay. He is no doubt a supreme talent, but you feel like he isn’t showing Jose Mourinho enough on the training field for him to be selected.
Morgan Schneiderlin signed from Southampton just over eighteen months ago, but has often had to settle for a spot on the bench. When given his rare opportunity, he didn’t do anything enough to keep his place, and that’ll be his downfall.
