Bolo Zenden has urged Memphis Depay to ignore any potential interest from Manchester United and stay at PSV Eindhoven this summer.

The 20-year-old Netherlands international has been touted as a potential target for new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal as he looks to bolster his midfield options ahead his first campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

However, former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder Zenden feels that Depay would be wise to stay in Holland to continue his development.

“I think Depay should stay in Eindhoven for two years,” Zenden told Omroep Brabant.

He needs to grow with PSV and then have a nice transfer after the European Championship in 2016. That would be best for his development.”

Speaking last month, the player himself admitted that he had heard about the reported interest in his services from the Premier League.

“Of course I’ve read that Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested,” Depay told Algemeen Dagblad. “But no more than that.

“I’ll see later. My agent Kees Ploegsma is here [in Brazil] too, but we are not talking about that kind of stuff. That is for after the World Cup.”
