Memphis Depay On His Way Out Of Manchester United; Replacement Already Lined Up

Memphis Depay could be on his way out of Manchester United this summer, after spending just 12 months at the Old Trafford club.

Memphis was signed by Louis van Gaal from PSV Eindhoven for a fee of £25 million last summer, and was regarded as the next big thing at Manchester United, which is precisely why he received the legendary #7 shirt upon his arrival.

However, the highly-rated Dutchman managed to make only 16 starts in the Premier League, along with 13 substitute appearances, and scored only two league goals for the Red Devils – nowhere near the level of performances he displayed during his final season in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Frustrated with his time in Manchester, the 22-year-old now looks set to move away from the club. This speculation grew even more earlier this month, when Memphis hired a Dutch vehicle transport company to ship all his vehicles back to Holland.

New Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also believed to be very unlikely to accept Depay’s lack of desire on the pitch, and the Special One will therefore make no extra attempts to keep the Netherlands international at the club should he decide to leave.

In fact, if Memphis Depay does part ways with the 20 time English champions, Mourinho is already believed to have lined up a replacement who is considered equally good, if not better.

According to reports in Germany, the Portuguese tactician is keeping tabs on Julian Draxler’s situation at Wolfsburg. Draxler joined Wolfsburg from Schalke for a fee of £25.5 million last summer, and as per Bild, is already set to move on after spending just one season at his current club, much like Memphis Depay.

The 22-year-old is not entirely committed to completing the five-year deal he signed with Wolfsburg last August, and may seek a move away from the Bundesliga, amidst strong interest from Juventus, Arsenal, and now, Manchester United.

And as per TransferMarketWeb, the Red Devils seem to have already made a cash offer worth £38.5 million for the German international.

    When someone goes out and buying a rolls royce at the age of 21 and pulls up for training at United. Then they need to go because it clearly shows that his mind is in another place. He was not even making it into battle and was warming the bench and yet he was acting as if he was playing weekly. Now he is going to have a top quality car in Holland with the wheel on the wrong side. Now that is what I call funny.
