Memphis Depay fails to rule out PSV exit

Memphis Depay has failed to rule out an exit from PSV Eindhoven this summer, something that could act as huge encouragement for transfer suitors Manchester United and Tottenham.

Dutch international Depay has been the recipient of much transfer interest in recent months, with both aforementioned Premier League sides linked with a move for the rapid winger dubbed 'the new Cristiano Ronaldo' following his impressive World Cup campaign under Louis van Gaal.

The 20-year-old - who notched two goals in four appearances as the Netherlands secured a satisfying third-place finish in Brazil - has spent the entirety of his short senior career with PSV, and while he admits that staying with the club is a real possibility, he has also conceded that he would have to ponder any serious offer that involved departing De Kuip.

Depay could leave

"I am enjoying myself at PSV, but if nice clubs from big leagues make an approach, I will of course think about it.

"There is plenty of interest, but staying at PSV is definitely an option," he told De Teelgraaf in an interview that was cited by The Daily Express.

Van Gaal - who took the reigns at Manchester United in the aftermath of his country's victory over Brazil earlier this month - should be fully aware of Depay's strengths, of course, and presumably knows how he could fit into his plans for the future at Old Trafford.

Manchester United will not be the only club boosted by Depay's recent admission, with Tottenham also known to be on the versatile starlet's trail.

Mauricio Pochettino completed the signings of Swansea duo Michel Vorm and Ben Davies earlier this month in a part-exchange deal that saw Icelandic playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson exit White Hart Lane.

Pochettino - who left Premier League rivals Southampton earlier this summer to take up the vacant managerial post in North London - is clearly eager to deploy a more cautious approach in the transfer market than the likes of Andre Villas-Boas, although Depay's potential and links with Manchester United would make him an excellent addition to the Argentine's squad.
