Liverpool are reportedly interested in former Manchester United forward Memphis Depay as the Sadio Mane to Real Madrid rumours refuse to go away.
That’s according to L’Equipe – via the Metro – who also report that United have a ‘buy back’ clause in their deal with Memphis, but it’s unclear is Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is interested.
Depay was valued very highly when he made the move to Man United in 2015, but it didn’t work out for him at Old Trafford.
The Dutch forward has played some incredible football since swapping the red of Manchester for the white shirt of Lyon.
Should Mane fancy pastures new then we could do a lot worse than Memphis – the only question is of the response.
Would Liverpool fans accept a former United man and what kind of reception would that player receive in the next north-west derby?
Depay seems like the kind of guy that thrives off stuff like that and I imagine he’d revel in the role of the villain to United.
Should he join the Reds, he’d link up with national team mates Gini Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk – two players he assisted in a recent game for Holland.
Apparently a bid of £45million could be enough to prize the Dutchman from the Ligue 1 club. Would you take him?
