Manchester United touting big-money flop around Europe after emergence of better prospects

Posted by

Manchester United are ready to offload big-money flop Memphis Depay after his hugely disappointing debut campaign at Old Trafford, according to The Mirror.

The Mirror reports that Louis van Gaal has sanctioned the sale of the £25m signing, who has scored only two Premier League goals since joining from PSV Eindhoven.

The 22-year-old winger has been touted to clubs in the Premier League and around Europe as United aim to ditch him at a knockdown price, The Mirror understands.

Depay was United’s marquee signing last summer having arrived on the back of an impressive World Cup with the Netherlands, and a 22-goal season in the Eredivisie.

But he has been completely outperformed by the likes of Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, and United may feel that trio are better prospects.

Martial scored a stoppage-time winner yesterday as the Red Devils beat Everton 2-1 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, with Depay an unused substitute at Wembley.
