Memphis Depay is set to leave Old Trafford in January, starting an exodus of Manchester United’s fringe players before the beginning of next season.

Depay, a £25million signing just 17 months ago, accepts he has no future under Jose Mourinho after he was left at home when United lost against Fenerbahce in Istanbul on Thursday night.

The Holland winger has only made one start this season, in the EFL Cup against Northampton, and wants to make a fresh start in January.

Depay is typical of the players who have upset Mourinho by failing to provide more competition for first-team places. The United boss feels his message is not getting through, leading to an apathy and lack of intensity within the squad.

Mourinho publicly criticised his team’s lack of focus following the 2-1 defeat by Fenerbahce, when Morgan Schneiderlin, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian all struggled.

They are unlikely to stay beyond this season and will be among a number of players to be offloaded along with Bastian Schweinsteiger.
