Jose Mourinho tacitly confirms Manchester United done deal for defenders

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho  has indirectly revealed that two Manchester United players are likely to move out of Old Trafford by the end of the season after failing to get regular action since he  took charge of the team from Ryan Giggs.

The Portuguese manager has earlier in the season revealed that he won’t be making much changes to his present crop of players in the season, especially the team’s attacking frontline. Despite his early comments about his plans for the upcoming summer transfer window, the manager is believed to be parting ways with two of his defenders— Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind.

While revealing his stand over both players’ future in the club, Mourinho told reporters that he need not to reveal much about his players to the outside world but he believes he would love to keep them, though keeping them lies in their decisions.


He said: “I feel that I don’t have to open the door of what is internal business. What I can say is the same I said in relation to Darmian and Daley Blind – I want to keep them.”

 “The only player that is leaving, for sure, is Michael [Carrick], who we have to replace with another player. There is not another one that in my reports to the board and to the owners I said I want to sell – not one.”

He further confirms that only Michael Carrick is guaranteed to stop playing for United by the end of the season. The England international is set to put an end to his successful career in some weeks time and he is believed to be integrated into Mourinho’s backroom staffs ahead of next season.

Meanwhile, Milinko-Savic is. tipped as the ideal player to replace the Englishman and United are reportedly in the final phase of discussion with the 23-year-old Lazio player.
