News emerged on Thursday evening that Ligue 1 side Lyon had entered talks with EPL giants Manchester United over the transfer of Memphis Depay and now it has been officially confirmed.
Depay has barely played under José Mourinho this season and he looks set to be on his way out from the Old Trafford club. A few clubs are after him, giving the winger the chance to make a choice.
Last night, FootMercato threw West Ham into the mix, still yet it seems the Ligue 1 side have a bit of a head start.
In a press conference ahead of their game against Caen on Sunday, Lyon’s manager Bruno Génésio confirmed the fact that there was a strong interest from his side for Memphis Depay.
“I’ve made Depay a priority, he’s a complete player. Depay can also replace Rachid Ghezzal in case he leaves next summer.” He said.
This season so far, the Dutchman has only played 134 minutes of football starting just one game in a 55 minute appearance against Northampton Town in the EFL Cup.
Manchester United reportedly want at least €17m for Depay. If that is true, it would be a considerable loss considering that they spent close to £30m for him back in 2015.
