Man United transfers: Red Devils handed big Memphis Depay boost

PSV Eindhoven director Marcel Brands says that the club are likely to sell Memphis Depay this summer

PSV Eindhoven director Marcel Brands admits that the Dutch club are likely to sell Memphis Depay this summer, amid speculation linking the winger with a transfer to Manchester United.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from PSV in recent weeks and the Red Devils are understood to be keeping tabs on Depay’s situation.

And Brands concedes that Depay is likely to leave PSV this summer as Manchester United continue to be linked with a move for the winger.

“The chances are very high that he leaves,” Brands is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

“If you see what clubs are enquiring about him, they really are the best in Europe,” the Daily Star quotes the PSG chief as saying.

“When I talk for PSV I would say he is not ready and should continue here for another year. But I am realistic and if I worked at a big European club, I’d buy him without question.

“With a heavy heart [we would let him go], because a great player and a great guy leaves. But we are also proud that a boy from the academy is going to make such a step.”

Tottenham and Liverpool are among the other Premier League clubs linked with a move for the forward.

Depay became the youngest Dutchman to score a goal at a World Cup after the winger netted against Australia in the group stage last summer.

The PSV youngster, who was named on the three-man shortlist for the World Cup’s best young player award, came off the bench to score against Chile in Holland’s final group-stage fixture.
