Bengaluru,
Aug
30:
Manchester
United
are
reportedly
keeping
tabs
on
Memphis
Depay’s
situation
and
in
a
surprising
turn
of
events,
an
offer
could
be
made
in
the
closing
days
of
the
summer
transfer
window.

The
Dutch
attacker
has
been
told
to
leave
the
club
by
the
Catalan
board
after
the
signings
of
Robert
Lewandowski
and
Raphinha
pushed
him
down
the
pecking
order.
Depay
was
linked
with
a
move
to
Juventus
however
the
deal
failed
to
materialize.
With
the
28-year-old
now
looking
for
new
suitors,
Manchester
United’s
name
have
popped
up.

The
Red
Devils
could
seek
another
attacker
before
the
transfer
window
shuts
due
to
the
concerning
future
of
Cristiano
Ronaldo.
The
Portuguese
superstar
is
pushing
towards
an
exit
door
and
should
a
deal
materialize
United
would
seek
a
replacement.

Having
spent
a
good
amount
of
fees
on
new
signings,
the
club
are
not
expected
to
make
any
more
high-profile
signing,
and
Depay
who
could
available
for
as
low
as
£8
million,
now
has
emerged
as
an
option.

Depay
previously
spent
a
short
and
frustrating
stint
with
Manchester
United,
where
he
failed
to
stamp
his
authority
after
a
£31
million
move
in
2015.
The
move
proved
too
much
too
soon
for
the
Dutch
prodigy
then
who
could
not
handle
the
pressure
and
hype
surrounding
him.

However,
things
immediately
changed
following
his
move
to
Lyon
where
he
scored
goals
for
fun.
His
move
to
Barcelona
has
also
been
decent
with
him
scoring
13
goals
for
Barcelona
last
season.

The
28-year-old
Dutch
attacker
has
been
on
the
rise
in
the
last
few
years
since
leaving
the
Old
Trafford
side
and
here
are
the
three
reasons
why
his
return
would
benefit
Manchester
United:


1.
More
experience,
better
player

Overall
Depay
has
had
direct
involvement
in
121
goals
in
166
games
for
Lyon
and
Barcelona
since
leaving
Manchester
United
which
is
outstanding.
Memphis
has
slowly
grown
into
the
player
he
is
today
and
is
definitely
a
better
version
of
the
former
self
who
is
more
experienced
and
more
prolific.
Now
at
the
age
of
28,
Depay
still
has
plenty
left
to
offer
and
for
such
a
little
amount,
it
could
be
a
good
option
for
United.


2.
Premier
League
proven

Due
to
his
former
stint
with
United,
Depay
would
know
the
English
environment
and
it
could
see
him
hit
the
ground
running
from
the
first
day.
He
could
adjust
to
the
pace
of
the
league
pretty
easily.
Moreover,
with
him
knowing
a
couple
of
teammates
from
his
earlier
stint,
he
could
gel
pretty
easily
at
Old
Trafford.


3.
Versatility

An
energetic
spark
at
the
tip
of
the
attack,
his
combination
play
is
strong
and
could
suit
Ten
Hag’s
fluid
system
across
the
frontline.
Depay
can
play
as
a
center-forward
and
can
add
vital
depth
to
United’s
number
nine
position.
With
Depay
in
the
team,
United
could
play
the
same
system
and
could
bond
well
with
United
forwards
Antony,
Anthony
Martial,
Jadon
Sancho,
and
Marcus
Rashford.
