Borussia Dortmund eye Memphis Depay to replace Jadon Sancho amidst Manchester United interest
The Dutchman endured a tough time as a United player from 2015 to 2017. Brought in by Louis van Gaal, he failed to hit the heights he promised to at PSV Eindhoven.
He has enjoyed a new lease of life at Olympic Lyonnais and could now move to Dortmund in a deal worth £40million.
According to the report, Depay is also keen on leaving the French giants. Lyon endured a difficult season that saw them finish seventh. With no Champions League to look forward to, the 26-year-old is keen to move on.
Sancho is United’s top transfer target for the summer. One of the finest players in the world, the 20-year-old will add another dimension to the United frontline.
Dortmund continue to stand firm on their hefty £110m valuation of the player. It remains to be seen whether United are willing to match that price tag.
Negotiations are ongoing between the clubs with an agreement yet to be reached. The onus is now
Although one of the best talents in the world, United face no competition for the player at this point in time. Liverpool and Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of the 20-year-old. They have however ruled out any big money buys this summer. (h/t Independent)

The 26-year-old Depay was unable to do justice to the famed number 7 shirt at United. He managed just two league goals during his time and was promptly shipped out to Lyon.
Three years on, he could help United sign a true number 7 who could carry on the legacy of the shirt.
