PSV winger Memphis Depay seems keen to seal a quick move to Old Trafford this summer as he jets in for talks, plus the rest of the day’s big stories.
Depay in England to ‘seal’ Man United move – Memphis Depay has flown to England with his agent and is talking to Manchester United about a move to Old Trafford.
The Sun say that the two sides are discussing a £25 million deal that would pay him £130,000-per-week. Paris Saint-Germain are also chasing the 21-year-old, but the Red Devils think that the established relationship between Depay and Louis van Gaal, who coached him at the World Cup, will be enough to get the transfer done. Paper Round’s view – Depay has always been likely to sign with Manchester United.
They’re a giant club, are willing to pay him huge money, are back in the Champions League and van Gaal has managed him before. This is just a matter of finalising the deal before other clubs can get in to hijack it and meeting with Depay now to wrap it up is just good business since PSV are resigned to losing him and won’t stand in the way. To all intents and purposes, it looks as though United have sealed their first signing of the summer.
