Manchester United Football Club are closing in on a deal that’ll see Memphis Depay move to Lyon in Ligue 1. The 22-year-old has had a torrid time at the Theatre of Dreams since Louis van Gaal brought him to the club just over eighteen months ago, and now he looks send to end his time here.
The move certainly looks extremely close to happening too, as L’Equipe posted this photo on their website late last night. The Dutch winger certainly looks happy to be moving away, and you certainly cannot blame him for that given how limited his minutes on the field has been under Jose Mourinho.

Personally, I’m absolutely gutted that Memphis wasn’t able to show his full capabilities here. The young man is obviously massively talented, and it’s just a shame that he hasn’t really been given a proper opportunity under Jose Mourinho.
That said, you do have to keep full faith in the manager, because let’s be honest, our coach knows exactly what he is doing.
As for Memphis, this gives him a new lease of life in a much less demanding league which will be good for him. Hopefully, he can go there and shine. Who knows, we may see him back here in the future…
