Manchester United and Liverpool may be forced to go elsewhere in their chase for new Dutch sensation Memphis Depay, as Paris Saint-Germain are ready to go larger than their rivals are willing to.

According to The Sun, the Ligue 1 champions are prepared to pay big for the PSV Eindhoven star and will see off interested parties in Brendan Rodgers and especially Louis van Gaal with a 'mega-money contract'.

The report claims that the Old Trafford manager is very keen on taking the 21-year-old to Manchester United and the Premier League giants made an official enquiry about him to PSV, which sparked PSG into action.

£25million is the price mooted for Depay after what has been by far his best season so far in the PSV senior team. He is currently top of the goalscoring charts in the Eredivisie with 20 goals, which have just helped fore his side to the title for the first time in seven years.

Now the Qatari-owned club from the French capital are preparing to make an offer their Dutch counterparts cannot refuse and, if either of Manchester United and Liverpool decide to join in, will end the conversation with huge salary offer.

Rodgers has reportedly been told to start rebuilding the squad for next season after any real interest in this term was ended with a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

Champions League qualification is the only thing left to play for, but their current form would suggest they do not have it in them to overhaul the four-point advantage Manchester City have over them in fourth - that also relies on them winning their game in hand.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have finished the season well and things are looking for more optimistic going into next season after an abysmal start to the current campaign and they are expected to spend significantly once again come the summer.

A 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday hated their momentum somewhat, but it was not entirely deserved and there was a lot to take from a strong performance at Stamford Bridge, despite their already slim hopes of overhauling the Blues in the Premier League title race being ended.
