Morgan Schneiderlin will be staying at Manchester United as Tottenham have decided against making a move to sign him on deadline day, as per ESPN FC.

The France midfielder, signed for £24 million last summer, has only featured once for United in the Premier League so far this season, coming on as a substitute for the final five minutes in the 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Aug 14.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who helped Schneiderlin develop while the pair were together at Southampton, was rumoured to be interested in a reunion but the player’s agent, Pascal Boisseau, has cleared out all the doubts: “He’s staying in Manchester”, as quoted by Sportwitness.

United manager Jose Mourinho has already ruthlessly cut Bastian Schweinsteiger out of his first-team plans this summer, but Schneiderlin looks set to avoid that fate despite being behind Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and possibly even Michael Carrick on the club’s midfield depth chart.

The Portuguese tactician is happy with his squad and with Schneiderlin ready to fight for a place in his team, Sources have told ESPN FC that Tottenham’s interest in the 26-year-old has now cooled.
