Jose Mourinho has reassured Memphis Depay that he remains part of his Manchester United first-team squad.
Depay was named by one newspaper in a list of players who were for sale, but Mourinho has rubbished that the Dutchman could leave.
Mourinho stressed that, while last year was disappointing for Depay, he had seen plenty enough to beleive that the Dutchman could succeed at Old Trafford.
“Depay is very much part of my squad,” Mourinho said.
“I know you look at the last match and he was not even on the bench but in September we have the EFL Cup, Europa League and Premier League, so that will be the end of the frustration for the players not being selected at the moment.
“I was impressed with Depay at the last World Cup and that was two years ago when he was a very young kid.
“I watched him many times at PSV, and having that player in mind, I want to keep him. Especially as I see a good boy, a good professional.
“You can see him driving a nice car and think his mind is not on football but that is not the case.
“I don’t care what people think, I believe in him. He is frustrated with what happened last season when he lost all his confidence but he will be back.”
