It would come as no surprise if Manchester United opt to sell Memphis Depay this summer.
The Dutchman has failed to live up to his £25 million price tag since joining from PSV Eindhoven last summer and often found himself frozen out at Old Trafford.
And if he does leave, Depay will become one of the most expensive flops in United's history.

Here are three other players who arrived at Old Trafford for big money but, in hindsight, should never have been bought in the first place.
Juan Sebastian Veron
Following United's third-successive Premier League title in 2001, Sir Alex Ferguson splashed £28 million on Argentina international and Lazio star Juan Sebastian Veron in the hope that he could help achieve further success.

However, the midfielder never quite adapted to English football and endured a difficult first season, scoring just five times as Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal ended United’s winning streak.
His second term wasn't much better, though he did at least score one more goal across all competitions and help United regain the title before jumping ship for a new challenge with Chelsea in 2003.
But, like his spell at United, the 41-year-old underwhelmed in west London and was sold the following summer by Jose Mourinho.
If there is one player that continues to frustrate United fans more than any other, it's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
The 28-year-old cost the club £27 million to sign from Everton during David Moyes’ sole summer transfer window at the Theatre of Dreams.
He was poor under the Scot and continues to look out of his depth under the tutelage of Louis van Gaal.
A move elsewhere appears imminent - at least, United fans hope it is.
Angel Di Maria
The former Real Madrid star cost United a staggering £60 million in 2014 but left for Paris Saint-Germain just a year later having struggled for form throughout his debut campaign.
A stunning performance against QPR came as a bright start for Angel Di Maria, who followed that up with an exquisite goal against Leicester City, but a dreadful run soon followed.
He lost his place to Ashley Young for the final few months of the season and left for Paris having refused to join United’s pre-season tour of America.
Di Maria is now back to his best in the French capital but will always be remembered on these shores as one of the biggest and most expensive flops in Premier League history.
