Manchester United Ahead Of Liverpool And Spurs In Race For Flying Dutchman
Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs are all seriously interested in PSV Eindhoven's Memphis Depay and were all thought to be weighing up summer moves for the 21-year-old.
However, according to the Mirror, Manchester United clear favourites to sign the Dutch sensation. Their connection to the player via Louis van Gaal is extremely significant and may prove decisive come the summer transfer window.
Depay is valued at around £15million but could easily fetch more, especially if a number of clubs were to go after him and start a bidding war. But United's financial power is just as formidable as their pull-factor, van Gaal. The dutch coach is set to be handed another huge transfer kitty this summer to further rebuild, improve and ultimately sort out the United squad.
With 21 goals in 31 games for club and country this season, Memphis Depay has more than just a youthful energy and potential — he's delivering results now. Although defensive issues may be the priority, it'd be a wise move on United's part to secure the services of such a hugely promising player.
