Manchester United Football Club have been playing rather well lately, with Jose Mourinho tending to stick with the same players who have been performing at a high enough level. That has led to some players being used sparingly, one of which is Memphis Depay.
However, despite rumours linking him with a potential move away from Old Trafford, the 22-year-old clearly isn’t letting his head drop, and he took to Twitter to post a photo of himself in first-team training with the rest of the lads.
Check out Memphis’ tweet here:

The young Dutchman came to the Theatre of Dreams with so much promise, he made the move on the back of a stunning season in the Eredivisie, and I guess us Reds expected something similar for us.
However, he made a slow start to life at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal, and it wasn’t long before he had to settle for a spot on the bench. Then Jose Mourinho came in, and a place in the squad was by no means guaranteed. This campaign, Depay has played just seven times for the club – most of which have been bench performances.
In my opinion, it is best for all involved that Depay moves on. He just hasn’t produced the goods here, and whether that is down to a lack of confidence or trust from the manager remains to be seen.
He should do what he can to get himself a move away, because his career is simply stunting here, and he is still young enough to get back on the right track.
