Tottenham could still move for Dutch starlet Memphis Depay, despite reported interest from Manchester United and Manchester City, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The 20-year-old winger has impressed in the World Cup for the Oranje, but remained quiet on his future plans.
"I'll see later. My agent Kees Ploegsma is here too, but we are not talking about that kind of stuff. That is for after the World Cup," he told reporters after the Netherlands 2-1 win over Mexico.
“I’ve not become a champion with PSV. The fact is that people now ask me what I’m going to do and I understand that. But now, it’s the World Cup.”
Depay scored twice in the group stage, against Australia and Chile, and Spurs were linked with a £20million move for the PSV player, but his manager Phillip Cocu has denied there has been any contact with the North London side nor anyone else.
"There have been no contacts, and he has a contract with PSV [until 2017], thus let's not get ahead of ourselves,” he said.
Is he right for Spurs?
Despite Depay's ability, questions have to be asked if he is truly necessary at White Hart Lane. With record-signing Erik Lamela still at the club and working hard to be fit for pre-season, Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend filling the flying winger role, and the likes of Christian Eriksen, Lewis Holtby and Gylfi Sigurdsson battling for attacking roles, there will need to be some outgoings before there is space for a new attacker.
