Memphis Depay has found himself on the fringes of the Manchester United first team since Mourinho took over and he doesn’t look too happy about it. Even the sight of his £250K Rolls Royce didn’t seem to lift his spirits.
The Dutchman was pictured looking glum as he rolled out in the super car for lunch with a friend in Cheshire village.
He has hardly featured for United this season and has strongly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford but Mourinho has hinted that the player has a future with the Red Devils. Mourinho said of the 22-year-old: ‘We have a lot of players in Memphis’ position. It is the one position where we are overbooked really.
‘We have Lingard, Mkhitaryan, Mata, Rashford, sometimes Rooney, Memphis. We have a lot of players there. So it is not easy for anyone of them to play.
‘I was informed by the club that there is a chance Memphis could leave. From a human point of view, I cannot stop him from leaving when he is not playing under me.
‘If he is staying, I would be more than happy because he is a fantastic guy and a very good player. I feel so sorry that I am not giving him opportunities to play. A player of his age needs to be playing matches. If he stays with me, for sure, he will play some games because we have so many matches.’
