Manchester United are in a rich vein of form at the moment, with Jose Mourinho’s men finally putting in the performances we all know they are capable of. The manager seems to finally know the players he can rely on, which means he has also figured out who doesn’t deserve a place at this club.
One man who’s future is well and truly up in the air at the moment is winger Memphis Depay. The 22-year-old has barely played under the new management structure at Old Trafford, and perhaps a move away is in his best interests.
However, it seems as though Manchester United aren’t willing to let him leave on a loan deal, as they want a permanent one instead. That’s according to The Sun, who say that Everton has been sniffing around the signature of Depay on a short-term deal.
The report says that Everton would much prefer to ‘test the waters’ and take the Dutchman on a loan move before spending big money on bringing him to Goodison Park permanently; which is obviously understandable. They also add that United would want to sell him for good, to try and recoup as much of the transfer fee as possible.
It is a real shame what’s happening with Memphis, because in my opinion, he’s a supremely talented individual. Sadly, it just hasn’t worked out for him here, and I feel a move away is in the best interests of all involved.
