How much will Depay?

Dutch outlet Voetbal International (in Dutch) have reported that PSV Eindhoven are in peliminary discussions with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain regarding the transfer of Memphis Depay. Both clubs are extremely interested in the Dutch sensation and are looking to seal a deal early.

PSV's general manager, Gerbrands, has admitted that "[PSV] have had a telephone call from [Manchester United] about him" and that they are "talking about higher amounts when it comes to Memphis". This indicates a bidding war between the two European heavyweights may be underway.

Even if Depay does cost more than initially thought, he'd be a fantastic signing for Manchester United. The 21-year-old has scored an incredible 26 goals this season and just yesterday helped PSV win their first title in 7 years. 

There's no doubt that Louis van Gaal will play his part in persuading Depay. Gerbrands indicated that the player will choose where he goes, which gives his ex-national coach the upper hand in negotiations.
