Manchester United monitoring Holland’s World Cup sensation Memphis Depay [Mike Keegan, BBC]
After Louis van Gaal’s successful World Cup with the Netherlands, leading them an unexpected semi-final and 3rd place, several links have inevitably been established between Manchester United and Dutch internationals.
For now, no official bid has been made for any, but Memphis Depay is one player Van Gaal may make a move for, according to Mike Keegan of the BBC.
Keegan says United are monitoring Depay, though any deal made for the PSV wide-man may involve him being loaned straight out, due to his age and profile (just 20).
Depay was a sensation for the Oranje at the World Cup, a player many felt could and should have won the tournament’s best young player, ahead of France’s Paul Pogba.
Staying with #mufc and Dutch players, believe club are monitoring Memphis Depay. Any move could see him loaned out for first year.
