The Red Devils manager expects a quiet January transfer window when it comes to incoming players, but will not stand in a player’s way should he want to leave
Jose Mourinho does not expect any new arrivals at Manchester United in the January transfer window, unless they sell other players first.
The United boss recently revealed that he would be open to selling anyone who is unhappy at Old Trafford, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay believed to be keen to move on.
The duo’s exit could force United to enter the transfer market and add to their ranks, but Mourinho is not contemplating any deals for now.
“I like my squad, I trust my squad,” said the Portuguese, whose side travel to West Brom on Saturday. “At the moment, if you ask me if I am waiting for someone to be here on the first of January, or if we are chasing some player because we want to have a new player here on the first of January, not at all.
“As I have said, I like to keep my squad the same.
“But as I told you and I repeat, as a manager I never feel that I have the right to stop people trying to be happier and trying to give a different direction to their careers.
“If the conditions are right for the club and that moment arrives during the month of January, then we will have to react.
“I am quiet and calm. I will see what happens. Let’s just see what happens.”
