Manchester United are consistently looking to strengthen their attacking department and Memphis Depay is a priority target.
As per today’s version of Mundo Deportivo (press image provided below), the Dutch international’s future at the Nou Camp does not seem to last beyond next summer and therefore, he could even be sold this month.
The Spanish media outlet have mentioned Xavi Hernandez would like to sign a replacement in case Depay leaves but the financial conditions at Barca would not allow that.
It is reported that Man Utd are in search of a striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and one of their priorities is to re-sign Depay.
The 28-year-old forward has only started three games in all competitions for the Blaugrana in the current campaign and mainly warms the bench behind superstar striker, Robert Lewandowski.
MD claim apart from the Netherlands international, Ten Hag is also looking at attackers like Joao Felix, Mohammed Kudus and Randal Kolo Muani.
Depay would prefer to spend the last 6 months of his contract in Spain so that he can move on a bosman in the summer transfer window.
In case the £158,000 a week star (The Sun) does end up returning to Old Trafford this month, he would meet against Barcelona in the Europa League next month.
Have your say – Who should Man Utd sign to reinforce the attack in the January transfer window?
