Jose Mourinho has stressed Memphis Depay could still have a future at Manchester United if he does not leave the club this month.

The Netherlands international, who has made just four Premier League appearances this season, has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Everton reportedly keen to add him to their ranks.

United have yet to receive a formal offer for Depay, though, and Mourinho has made it clear he would not mind the 22-year-old staying put.

“We have a lot of players in Memphis’ position. It is the one position where we are overbooked really,” United boss Mourinho told Fox Sports.

“We have [Jesse] Lingard, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, [Juan] Mata, [Marcus] Rashford, sometimes [Wayne] 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. 

“If he leaves, we wish him all the best for the future because he is a fantastic kid.”
