What £50-rated star discussed with Mourinho before sack
It has been revealed that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho had a discussion with Ligue 1 outfit Lyon winter Memphis Depay before his eventual switch to France.
Memphis Depay parted ways with the Old Trafford in 2017 with a fee of £16 million after failing to impress at the club and immediately returned to his best at the start of his life with the Ligue 1 side.
Therefore it was revealed that before his departure, he held talks with the Portuguese international and told him he was leaving. But most importantly, he told Mourinho that he was going to become one of the best players in the world when he leaves.
The prediction of the star player seems to be coming real knowing that he has risen from the level he used to be which has even attracted him to a number of big clubs including Liverpool.
So far this season, Memphis Depay has got 23 games under his belt and he has delivered goals in 8 occasions and handing a total of 11 assists across all competitions.
However, the former Man United star has got a contract with the French Ligue 1 side until 2021 as his release clause increasing to £50 million which means any suitor must meet that before having his signature.
