Liverpool fans – we’re an interesting bunch. I guess it wouldn’t really be a proper transfer window without Reds fans tracking a few flights on mobile phone applications.
This time it’s Memphis Depay. According to the Manchester Evening News, Lyon are open to cashing in on the Dutch international with the Reds reportedly monitoring the situation.
With all the attention the attacking midfielder has had on social media in recent weeks – being very friendly with Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum, it’s likely the former Manchester United fan is just playing up.
Depay shared a video to his Instagram page of himself boarding a bright red plane, in a bright red suit, with the caption ‘merci Lyon’, and this got Liverpool fans talking on social media.
The ‘thanks Lyon’ caption is quite cryptic and does seem to suggest the star is on the move. We’ve also seen players dress up for the club as Naby Keita famously sported a red suit around the time it was rumoured he was set to join Liverpool.
Some fans have now gone as far as to track his fight – you’ve got to admire the passion! See below:
