Depay’s current contract with Barcelona will expire in 6 months. The Spanish news source have mentioned that the Blaugrana do not want to lose him for free and would like to get a fee in the current transfer window.

On the other hand, the Netherlands attacking midfielder wants a letter of freedom to leave the La Liga giants.

This season, the 28-year-old has only made four appearances in all competitions under Xavi and needs to exit the Nou Camp to play regular first-team football.

United recently parted ways with Cristiano Ronaldo and are looking at options to strengthen the attack.

The former PSV Eindhoven man, who earns around £254,000-a-week (FT), was a key member of the Dutch squad that reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Sport claim Man Utd, who have already negotiated with the player in the summer, do not intend to spend any cash to cash to reinforce the offense and would like a loan deal.

Memphis Depay, who can effectively play as a left winger and as a striker, failed in his first stint with the Red Devils. He only scored 7 goals in over 50 games for the club. Do you think he would excel under the management of Erik ten Hag?
