Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay expected to leave Man United in January – report

by Leo Nieboer

Both Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay are expected to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The pair haven’t managed to make a Premier League start under Jose Mourinho, managing just 14 appearances between them (primarily from the bench) this season.

It has been reported in recent weeks that the ostracised pair, left out of Man United’s squad to face Zorya Luhansk, have both received attention from Everton ahead of the January transfer window.

And according to M.E.N‘s Samuel Luckhurst, the two outcasts will leave the club in January.

Yannick Bolasie – a largely impotent force on Sunday – picked up an ACL injury during the draw with United at Goodison Park, heightening Ronald Koeman’s need for another winger in the upcoming transfer window.

Both Memphis and Koeman have refused to rule out such a move, with the Everton boss openly admitting his interest in the 22-year-old. A move away for Memphis, who has never really managed to settle in at Old Trafford, seems more like a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’.

The case of Schneiderlin feels slightly different: opportunities in the first team may be sparse, but the Frenchman – in games against the likes of Northampton Town, Feyenoord and Manchester City – has displayed his notorious steel and power at the base of midfield, and he could play an important role as the season goes on.
