As per Manchester Evening News, Mourinho confirmed that Memphis is in a position to leave the club to get more game time. The Portuguese manager also admits that Memphis is a good professional and works really hard.

“He was not playing last season. It was not that last season he was playing phenomenally and this season he is not playing at all. That’s not the situation,” said Mourinho.

“I have to say that in the past couple of months my decisions in relation to Memphis were influenced by the feelings and information that he would like to leave in January and that we were going to have a real offer that we would be willing to accept. That obviously influences me.”

“If I know, if I have the feeling that a player is leaving – if I have to give chances and develop other players – then I go to (Jesse) Lingard, (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan, (Anthony) Martial, the players I know 100 percent who are going to stay with us. It is a position where we have more options.”

“He’s a very good professional, is the only thing I can say. I know the public image is always influenced by some details of their private lives but the reality is that he is a very good professional, a very good boy,” added the United manager.”

“He has a high level of education, super polite, super professional, and works really hard.”

“But it’s a position where I have Martial, Mkhitaryan, Mata, Lingard plus Rooney and Rashford who can also play in this position. So we have six, seven players. When I have the feeling and information that the player probably has a big chance to leave then I have to care more about the others.”

“But in January if nothing happens – and we have lots of matches. Then if he is going to be my player until the end of the season I will help him and he will be useful for us,” said Mourinho.

Meanwhile, Netherland head coach Danny Blind said that Memphis must make a move out of Manchester United soon. “Memphis must make a transfer in January,” said Blind. “He is not on the core of the squad. This is why he should move.”
