Despite Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, Manchester United fans were in high spirits on Monday morning as it was reported that the Red Devils have made an official approach for PSV winger Memphis Depay.
Liverpool have also been linked with an interest in the pacy Dutchman, but all UK bookmakers regard Old Trafford as his most likely destination.
Depay is one of the hottest talents in world football, so it is no surprise that United fans are getting very excited. After all, the lad has bagged 20 goals in 27 Dutch league games.
While United fans were celebrating – albeit a tad prematurely – Liverpool supporters were left cursing what looks set to be another one that got away.

Liverpool set to miss out on Depay and are at crossroads, both with fees and wages. Unless pay a certain level they’ll fall further behind.

Depay would be a great signing. Shame we won’t act like the big club we are and get him. It’ll be the same story as Sanchez, Salah etc.
