Memphis Depay keen to join Manchester United

Published 2 Comments

PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay has told his agent that he is keen to join Manchester United, who are interested in signing the Netherlands international, this summer. Newly-appointed Red Devils’ boss Louis van Gaal is a big fan of the 20-year-old and named him in his provisional World Cup squad earlier this month.

According to reliable Dutch magazine Voetbal International, Depay is open to the idea of moving to Old Trafford after this summer’s World Cup finals. The £15m-rated attack-minded player has bags of potential and could be one of the breakthrough stars in Brazil next month.

Van Gaal is certainly a big fan. The vastly-experienced 62-year-old, who was appointed Manchester United manager earlier this month, has been tipped to spend a small fraction of his £200m summer transfer budget on the promising youngster.

The Premier League giants have also been linked with a move for Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, who plays a similar role to Depay, but the Dutch connection could see Depay make the move to Manchester instead.

As well as United, others clubs are interested in the exciting Dutchman, who has also been used as a central striker on occasions by Van Gaal. But PSV will not sanction a sale unless they receive a bid which meets their valuation of the player.

Van Gaal could end up bringing several members of the Netherlands national team to Old Trafford with him after the World Cup reaches its conclusion. Highly-rated Feyenoord duo Bruno Martins Indi and Jordy Clasie have been strongly linked with a move to the English club, as have the likes of Wesley Sneijder and Stefan de Vrij.
