Will Memphis Depay return to Manchester United?

Saha believes Depay would be extremely motivated to return to Old Trafford. Still just 26, Depay has years ahead of him in the game.

Having arrived at United a kid, his second coming if it does happen will be that of a player who has fine tuned his skills. Despite his prodisious ability, his was raw and untamed during his spell at United.

His development has also seen him become a key member of the Dutch national squad. Depay has scored 19 goals in 51 appearances and played a starring role in Netherlands’ qualification for Euro 2020 (Now 2021).

Saha admitted that he was far from impressed with Depay during his time at United.

“I wasn’t a fan of Memphis Depay when he was originally at the club because I don’t think he was mentally ready.”

The Dutchman’s spell in Ligue 1 looks to have rubbed off on Saha, who believes he has matured at Lyon.

To his credit, Depay has gone on to resurrect his career than get lost in the wild.

He is a player who is vastly different from the one who walked into Carrington five years ago.
