According to German publication Bild (h/t Daily Mail), Borussia Dortmund have identified Memphis Depay as a replacement for Manchester United target Jadon Sancho.

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.

Three years on, he could help United sign a true number 7 who could carry on the legacy of the shirt.
