Manchester United want to sell Memphis Depay at the end of the season rather than pushing to complete a loan deal in the January transfer window, according to the Telegraph.

Louis van Gaal paid PSV Eindhoven an initial £25 million for Memphis in June 2015 and the Old Trafford club are hoping to recoup most of the fee for the 22-year-old.

His £90,000-a-week wages have also not helped the situation as he hasn’t played regularly under Jose Mourinho and the club are now interested in ending his nightmare.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has also been interested in Morgan Schneiderlin and is expected to make an improved offer this week after having a £19 million bid rejected.

They would prefer a loan move for Memphis and they’re not the only ones as Roma are also thought to be more interested in loaning than buying the Dutchman, as Nice have publicly spoken about their financial hurdles in order to secure a loan deal for Memphis.

He hasn’t lived up to expectations at Old Trafford and a loan move would be beneficial, especially as he’s showcased glimpses of his ability, particularly in Europe last season.

Memphis shouldn’t be allowed to leave in a permanent deal as he could be a top player at United, he just needs the right opportunities to pick up minutes in the Premier League.
