Gossip: Manchester United plot Memphis Depay bid

Manchester United are plotting a move for Dutch starlet Memphis Depay, according to this mornings Metro newspaper. The club are currently monitoring Depay’s situation, and a bid could happen in the not too distant future if you believe reports.

At just twenty, Depay is a raw talent. He played a bit-part at the World Cup and managed to bag himself a goal coming off the bench in the group stages.

He can play in a variety of different positions in the final third of the pitch, which his preferred spot out on the left-wing. He knows Louis van Gaal, and the tactics he employs so that’d mean he could come in and shouldn’t need time to adapt to that side of the game.

Journalists are suggesting that if a move does happen, Depay will be loaned back to his current club PSV for another year.

Would Depay be a good signing for Manchester United? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.

  1. Exciting talent! Can hit it from range, take men on, has good balance, poise and strength, keeps his feet well, good vision, good passer of the ball, good first touch and good cohesion with teammates around him, good positional awareness for both himself and his Teammates, tracks back and is a good tackler. 10 year prospect for United! Of all the speculation on Players coming to United, ie: Hummels, Strootman, Cavani, Di Maria, etc.., this lad has the greatest scope to provide an enormous impact at United, over and above any of the possible recruits mentioned. He would be a wise investment and it would cost little to obtain his services.
    Don’t let this kid get snapped up by some other Club, become a Champion and watch him slip through our fingers like we did two years ago with James Rodriguez! We could have got him for £ 25 million….now he’s going to Real Madrid for £80 million! Come on United! De Pay would compliment Herrara in the middle of the Park just nicely! Let’s act NOW!

  2. I agree. He could make a devestating partnership with Januzai on the other flank. I think though we need some quickfix signing like Vidal and Hummels, it is time to look at future also. We do not want another Rodriguez (who by the way was only 5 mil) or Paul Pogba to happen
