Manchester United; Depay Needs To Leave, Says Blind.
Category : News
Netherlands Coach Danny Blind has urged Memphis Depay to leave Manchester United during the January transfer window.
Depay moved to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in 2015 in a £25m deal but struggled to make an impact in his debut campaign under Louis van Gaal, and has fared little better under Jose Mourinho this season.
“Memphis must make a transfer in January. He is not on the core of the squad. This is why he should move,” Blind said.
“To Ronald Koeman’s Everton? Koeman knows him best, that can make a big difference.
“It has come to a stage where it might even be hard for him to get into the Everton side.
“On the wings at Everton they have players who will be serious competition for him. If those wingers stay, then it won’t be a piece of cake for Memphis to become a regular at Everton.”
Blind also says his son Daley, who has started the last two Premier League matches after featuring just twice in the previous seven games, is unlikely to leave Manchester United this January.
“Daley is at a club which is still involved in four competitions. I know he has not been picked a lot lately in the starting line-up but he still gets one match per week. This is why I can’t see him making a winter transfer,” he said.
