Mourinho Sold Depay Because Of One Player – Report

Memphis Depay

It has been revealed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had a secret reason for the sale of Dutch international Memphis Depay.

The 24-year-old signed for French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyon under Mourinho’s watch in January 2017 after the Red Devils agreed an initial fee of around £16m for his services.

According to the report from popular English news portal Daily Express, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho sanctioned the sale of Depay in the bid to give Armenian international midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan more playing time at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan spent one more year with the three-time European champions before he joined North London giants Arsenal in January 2018 in a swap deal involving Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez.

Memphis Depay struggled to make an impact during his 18-month stay at Manchester United but has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround in form at Lyon.

He’s in the spotlight after producing a MotM (Man-of-the-Match) performance for the Netherlands in their impressive 3-0 win over Germany at the Johan Cryuff Stadium in Amsterdam on Saturday night.

Depay doubled the Netherlands’ advantage in the 87th minute after Liverpool centre-back Virgil Van Dijk had given the hosts a 30th-minute lead.

Another Reds player Giorginio Wijnaldum added a third goal in added time to wrap up the convincing win.

Bruno Fernandes

Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon have turned down a big bid from Manchester United for one of their best players.

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been attracting the interest of Premier League giants Manchester United this summer.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Manchester United have turned down a €50m bid for Bruno Fernandes with the club holding out for the excess of €70m despite the fact that the player has a gentleman agreement with the club.

The gentleman agreement is for the club to release him if they receive at least €35m for the Portuguese international midfielder.

Recent reports also revealed that there’s an English bid of €62m for the player.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Bruno Fernandes for the majority of this summer’s transfer window.

Bruno Fernandes has a release clause of €100m in his Sporting Lisbon contract at the moment but the Portuguese giants are willing to sell their star player for less.

The 24-year-old had a season to remember in the last campaign after he scored 32 goals and also provided 18 assists for Sporting Lisbon in 53 games in all competitions.

He won the Portuguese Cup with his club last season after the penalty shootout victory over rivals FC Porto.

North London giants Arsenal have agreed to a loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

According to BBC journalist David Ornstein, Dani Ceballos would spend the next season on loan at Arsenal without the option of a permanent deal.

Dani Ceballos has spent two seasons at Real Madrid since joining from fellow Spanish La Liga club Real Betis.

He was recently part of the Spanish team that won the European u21 Championship this summer.

Dani Ceballos and Spain beat Germany 2-1 in the final of the tournament hosted by Italy and San Marino.

The player would be a direct replacement for Aaron Ramsey who left the Gunners for Juventus this summer.

The Welsh international spent over a decade at Arsenal before leaving the club on a free transfer earlier this summer.
