Report: Erik ten Hag eyeing shock move to bring Memphis Depay back to Manchester United

Manchester United are eyeing up a move to bring Memphis Depay back to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from The Daily Mailwho claim that due to financial constraints, Erik ten Hag will most probably have to make do with loan deals this winter. And an option for Man United is their ex-player Memphis Depay, currently of Barcelona.

Manchester United eyeing Memphis Depay deal

Ten Hag clearly needs someone who can operate as an orthodox number nine. And whilst Depay can play anywhere across the front-line, he is at his best when playing through the middle.

The former United ace is an enigmatic, precocious talent and on his day, he is unplayable. Depay is incredibly strong as well and would be ideally suited to leading the line on his own for United. The Barcelona ace has been described as a player with ‘unreal skill’ by the Metro.

Depay bagged 13 goals and two assists in 38 games for Barca last season (Transfermarkt). The 86-capped Holland international possesses exceptional technical ability and has a penchant for the extraordinary.

The 28-year-old joined United from PSV Eindhoven in 2015 for around £31m (BBC). He really struggled at Old Trafford though, bagging just seven goals and six assists in 53 games, before being moved on to Lyon. He’s a complete different player now though – a more mature and well-rounded one.
