Mediocre Horse Whisperer, s'up wid chew?

With Nani it was effectively a part exchange for Rojo, the situations are different.Van Gaal sent Nani on loan and some people kept convincing themselves that he wasn't getting rid.
The odds of the same thing happening here are high imo.
I could give you a list as long as you like of players sent on year long loans that will never be seen again at OT. We've shipped hundreds out as a prelude to moving them on permanently.
A few might have a future but that list is considerably shorter and he's at an age where he should be much closer to first team reckoning.
I might be wrong, it's just my opinion.
I would've thought an option to buy would've been included in the contract, with Varela having another few years on his contract too it does seem to me like Mourinho will be keeping a close eye on him, that's not to say he wont decide to move him on at the end of the loan of course.Try before you buy situation I think
