Everton are reportedly eyeing a loan move for Manchester United winger Memphis Depay in the January transfer window. Memphis has barely featured so far this season under Mourinho and has been left out of the last two match day squads by the Portuguese.
The Dutchman only joined the Red Devils from PSV Einthoven last summer under former United head coach Louis Van Gaal but has since struggled to make any real impact at Old Trafford.
According to the English tabloid newspaper The Daily Mail Everton boss Ronald Koeman sees the £90,000 a week Dutchman as an ideal candidate to replace Aaron Lennon on the flanks and is ready to make a loan offer to Manchester United for the winger in the January transfer window.
Memphis is undoubtedly a talented footballer who has all the makings of going on to become a real world class footballer. We have already seen that last season in particular against FC Midtylland in the Europa League at Old Trafford where the winger put in one of the most fantastic solo performances ever seen on a football field, however we just haven’t seen that often enough from him.
The arrival of Jose Mourinho to the club this summer was always going to prove a decisive time for not just Memphis but the entire Manchester United squad. It would be the moment when we see the players who Mourinho wished to keep at the club and the moment when we see the players who Mourinho wanted to get rid of and it now seems as though Jose Mourinho has decided that Memphis no longer has a future at the club.
For a player with so much potential and ability to be sitting in the stands every week is not only a crying shame for Manchester United but for football in general and in moving to Everton it may act as a springboard needed for him to kick start his career once more.
