Transfer deadline day is a very messy day, with articles popping up left, right and centre linking ‘x’ player to ‘y’ club, especially if said player hasn’t played much since the start of the season.
One of these happens to be Manchester United’s Morgan Schneiderlin, who only has seven minutes of first-team football under his belt so far.
A story was published on the Daily Mail’s website on Wednesday claiming that Tottenham were looking to bring Morgan Schneiderlin in to bolster their midfield, but that they had had little luck so far in trying to ‘test the water’ with Manchester United through intermediaries.
Sport Witness decided to contact Morgan Schneiderlin’s agent, Pascal Boisseau, to ask him what was going on, and he made things very clear: “He’s staying in Manchester.”
José Mourinho already told the media he was happy with the squad he had at his disposal, and wasn’t expecting much movement from his first-team members before transfer deadline day.
Obviously things could change come January if the French midfielder fails to get regular appearances in the cup and the Europa League (or even the Premier League), but as things stand on the 31st of August, 11 hours before the end of the window, Morgan Schneiderlin is staying at Manchester United.
