Morgan Schneiderlin is available in January for the right price, Jose Mourinho has confirmed. West Brom tabled an £18m bid for the Manchester United midfielder, according to Sky sources, while Everton are also understood to be interested. And speaking at his pre-Christmas press conference Mourinho made it clear Schneiderlin is expendable.
Asked about the 27-year-old's future, he said: "Great professional, fantastic boy, he opened 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 say to a player 'you are 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 going."
