Liverpool fans take to Twitter to call against Depay swoop as rumours circulate

The silly season is getting ever closer, and with it, the rumours are starting to gather. One rumour, that has been going on for a while, is that Sadio Mane could be leaving Anfield for the Bernabeu. According to L’equipe, via The Metro, the Reds could look to Memphis Depay as a Mane replacement should he leave, and the fans are having none of it.

There are very few players who are brave enough to cross the divide and play for both Liverpool and Manchester United in their careers, although that could be exactly what Memphis Depay is set to do. The Dutchman left Old Trafford back in January 2017 to sign for Lyon and has seen his performances improve greatly for that move, however, questions marks remain over whether he should return to England.

The Premier League was an obvious big step too soon for Depay, and United fans were thoroughly disappointed by the Dutchman with the way he flopped after his move from PSV. In the Eredivisie, he was looked at as one of the next great talents, and so far he hasn’t hit the lofty heights that were expected of him. Under Jurgen Klopp that could all change, but the chances of the Kopites allowing Mane to leave and replacing him with a Manchester United reject seem very slim.

You can read the Reds’ thoughts on the Depay rumours here:

The Reds have all been pretty clear on where they stand on this one, as they’re desperate to keep Mane and avoid Memphis Depay, making this one an easy one to turn down.
