Man Utd ‘ready to admit defeat’ over Jose Mourinho favourite in Old Trafford transfer move
The Belgium international will see his contract expire at the end of the season.
It means he will be free to join another club for nothing after five years at United.
David Moyes made the former Everton man his first signing at Old Trafford and had been widely criticised.
But in recent years, he has won his critics round by playing a pivotal role under Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho is a massive fan of the midfielder and has previously insisted that all parties were close to an agreement.
