Out-of-favour Manchester United star wants to leave Old Trafford

Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup fourth round was almost a perfect afternoon; there were starts for some of the less-utilised members of Jose Mourinho’s squad such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luke Shaw and Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial was given an opportunity to impress (which he arguably took) and United scored four goals in a comfortable win having failed to taste victory in their last three games.

The only sour note was news that the club may not be finished with their business in the January transfer window. After the sales of Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin, Mourinho had appeared to be happy with his squad for the remainder of this season, but the Portuguese revealed after Sunday’s game that Ashley Young could potentially be on his way out of the club, via BBC Sport:

“Ashley Young is a player I would love to keep. I am not happy if he leaves, but he is the only player that I am informed has a possibility of leaving. If I could choose, definitely yes he would stay with us.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
