Manchester United Football Club seem to be clicking into gear rather nicely at the moment, with Jose Mourinho’s men playing some lovely stuff. At times, the results haven’t really been ideal, but you can see exactly where the self-proclaimed Special One wants to take us.
Obviously, it’s going to take the manager some time to iron out the squad and turn it into one he’s completely happy with, but that’s normal. He’s only had one transfer window so far, and in January, I personally feel Jose Mourinho will make some more moves.
We’ve decided to pick out three names that we think could well depart from Old Trafford when the 2017 window kicks off…
The man who signed from Southampton under Louis van Gaal just hasn’t been anywhere near good enough for Manchester United. It’s sad really, because the Frenchman came in with so much promise and ability, but he hasn’t implemented his game on the side at all.
Over the last few weeks, he has barely made a match day squad, which in my opinion means his time at the club is over – particularly when Bastian Schweinsteiger plays in his position and the German is being included over him.
A possible destination is Everton and a reunion with his old boss Ronald Koeman. Will a deal be done in January? Hopefully, for his sake.
What a shame this move has been. Huge things were expected of Memphis Depay. He’s a supremely talented individual, and that’s exactly what Manchester United invested in. His time at United has been massively frustrating.
His time at United has been massively frustrating. Whenever he got a chance he never really grasped the opportunity, and he just coughs up the ball far too easily when he’s on the pitch.
It looks as though his confidence is absolutely empty, and you feel his heart is no longer in it at Manchester United. The quicker he gets a move away, the better it’ll be for all involved.
The Italian right-back made a stunning start to life at United at the start of last season. However, as his debut year progressed his form just got worse which was a huge concern. That led to him being replaced by Antonio Valencia as the starting right-back, and the Ecuadorian made that job his own.
Jose clearly doesn’t mind Darmian as a player, and whenever injuries across the back has occurred, the Italian has come in and done a decent job. However, you’d imagine it wouldn’t hurt the manager too much if a decent offer came in for him.
A move home to Italy would be ideal, and it’d mean an increase in minutes for Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who we all absolutely love at Manchester United.
