Brown told 88Sport: ''Chris Smalling two seasons ago was United’s best defender. Then Jose started to make a few changes and he hasn’t played a lot since then.

''He might have had a word with the manager already asking what the plan is for his future and if Jose has said he won’t be playing much then it’s in Chris’ best interests to leave and get first-team football. If he’s not said that though then there is still competition for places there.''
Brown concluded: ''Chris is still at a good age and will want to be playing.''
