Jose Mourinho names the only player who will leave Man United in January

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that only Sam Johnstone will be allowed to leave the club in January transfer window.

Mourinho was addressing the media a little while ago ahead of United’s game against Middlesbrough and said that the club have not received any concrete bids for either Memphis Depay or Morgan Schneiderlin and will not allow them to leave.

Speaking on the possible January exits, Mourinho cited Johnstone’s lack of first team action as the only reason for allowing the 23-year-old to leave on loan.

Manchester United manager also confirmed that he will not look to rotate the side when he takes on Middlesbrough and is only focused on winning the final game of 2016.

Mourinho also confirmed that skipper Wayne Rooney is still far from returning to the starting XI, however, Luke Shaw is once again fully fit but is not guaranteed to start against Middlesbrough tomorrow.
