Memphis Depay has become somewhat of a Outcast at Old Trafford this season. The £25million Manchester United signing, has not been part of Jose Mourinho's squad since beating Feyenoord 4-0 on November 24th, where he came on as a substitute in the 82nd minute.

With seven appearances this season, and no Starts under his belt, the question was asked why the player hadn't been given a chance during the season? The Manchester United Manager quickly pointed out that his recent reasons for not picking Memphis were loyalty based.

“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 That obviously influences me.”

The Holland boss Danny Blind has also stepped into the light and suggested that not playing regular Football will have an effect on his international career.

He stated that "Memphis must make a transfer in January. He is not on the core of the squad. That is why he should move".

Other Premier League clubs are interested and there are rumblings that Ronald Koeman's, Everton would be ideal for the star.

Memphis though may have to wait a little longer than he wants to wear new colours, as it now looks like Everton may be interested in another out of favour United player, in the form of Morgan Schneiderlin. But they are going to have to be quick to get this package deal together as West Brom are also keen to sign the highly rated Frenchman.

After Mourinhos comments about the player requesting to leave United, it is also thought that many others will now come knocking at the door for the player.

A package deal would definitely favour both clubs early on, as it is felt that Jose is still looking to bolster his side to help get United back into the top four and qualify for Champions League football. United are starting to play the way that the fans want to see them play again, but Jose can't risk not qualifying for the Champions League for another year, and for that reason, transfers into Old Trafford are a must this January.
