Former Manchester United attacker Memphis Depay has sent Liverpool fans into override by saying goodbye to Lyon and boarding a red plane, whilst sporting a red suit.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Lyon are willing to cash in on the star this summer. The Reds have previously been linked with a move for the 25-year-old, Depay would add much-needed depth to Liverpool’s frontline – which will be even more necessary next season should Daniel Sturridge exit Anfield on a free transfer.

Some Liverpool fans have even gone as far as tracking the star’s flight, however they may be disappointed as Depay will surely be heading out to the Netherlands to link up with his international teammates before the UEFA Nations League final four tournament:

Depay doesn’t seem like the kind of character that Jurgen Klopp would sign, the ace’s enigmatic nature wouldn’t really fit in with the rest of Liverpool’s squad, but it would be interesting to see how Klopp would handle a player of Depay’s nature.
Maybe this whole furore is just Depay having some fun on social media now that the season’s finished.
Would Depay be a good signing for Klopp’s side?
