Manchester United are reportedly ready to make an offer for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay.
The Lowdown: Antony links
The Red Devils look set to be in for a busy end to the window after making midfielder Casemiro their fourth signing of the summer.
Ajax winger Antony is of course rumoured to be the club’s next priority target, with United already having an €80m offer rejected.
United officials remain in talks and are willing to make an improved bid for the Brazilian, and it looks as if former forward Depay, who has a whopping €400 million release clause (£337m) in his Camp Nou contract, is also of interest.
The Latest: United links
They claim that Erik ten Hag’s side are ‘willing to bid’ for the Dutch forward, with a €10m figure mooted.
The report adds that Barcelona are working to move Depay on in a bid to lower their wage bill, hence the massive gap between price tag and release clause.
Do you want Depay back at Old Trafford?
Yes, bring him back!
No, look elsewhere!
The Verdict: A gamble…
Depay has netted 188 senior goals for club and country throughout his career, but he struggled during his previous stint at Old Trafford.
He has impressed since leaving United with Lyon and Barcelona, but it could still be a gamble to bring the 28-year-old back to the club. Desperate times may call for desperate measures, though, so this could be one to keep a close eye on over the coming days.
