Man United ready to let Schneiderlin go

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday he is willing to let midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin leave Old Trafford amid interest from Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion. No deal can be officially completed until the new year, when the transfer window is open, and the two clubs will have to finalise terms over his departure after 18 months at Old Trafford. But Schneiderlin is destined to leave after telling Mourinho he wants to quit United for regular first-team football.
“Yeah,” said Mourinho when asked if he would consider the offer. “He is a great professional, fantastic boy, very honest, very open and opens his heart a couple of times.
“My answer is simple: if he’s playing regular with me I have the right to say no way. If he’s not playing regular I have no right to tell a player that wants to be happy — to say to a player you’re going nowhere.
“My answer was, if the offer is right and our board thinks that the offer is a good offer in relation to the quality of a very good player like Morgan, I would not stop him to go.”
French international midfielder Schneiderlin, 27, joined United when Louis van Gaal was in charge in the summer of 2015 in a deal that could have reached a reported £27 million (31.7m euros, $33m). — AFP
