According to a new source reporting from Portugal, FC Porto have expressed an interest in signing Manchester United player Memphis Depay on loan for the rest of the season.
In recent times, it was reported that Depay who is yet to make a Premier League start this season so far for Manchester United, would be signed by Everton come January.
Nevertheless in the twist of event Porto are reportedly seeking a replacement for the in-form Algerian International Yacine Brahimi, who will depart to represent his country in January’s African Cup of Nations. And Jan Hagen has revealed that Porto manager Nuno Espírito Santo has pointed-out Memphis Depay as an ideal option.
Definitely, the Dutchman needs more activities on the pitch as he hasn’t been given the luxury of a full 90 minutes as a Manchester United player. He has last appeared for Mourinho’s team back in late November in an eight minute adventure against Feyenoord.
We thinks it would do him lots of good if he should embrace the move to Porto as the Portuguese domestic league isn’t as rigid as the Premier League. By facing lesser sides, he can express his abilities which will definitely restore back his confidence. This can have a positive influence on him upon his return back to the Old Trafford.
