Manchester City fans on Twitter would love to bring in Old Trafford dud Memphis Depay

Manchester City have previously benefitted from signing former Manchester United players, and they could be set to do again in this window. Interest is slim on the ground, but Memphis Depay has claimed he’s love to sign for a big club like Manchester City, whilst speaking to Helden Magazine.

If the Dutchman was to swap Lyon for Manchester City, he’d join an exclusive list of players including Kasper Schmeichel, Andy Cole, Carlos Tevez and Owen Hargreaves who have been Old Trafford regulars before ending up playing for their noisy neighbours City. However, this one would have more of a sting to it, as the rivalry between the two has become a lot fiercer as the Citizens have become a powerhouse.

If Depay was to leave, the chances are he would command a sizeable fee. However, he is still only 24-years-old and has been in incredible form for Lyon in Ligue 1 since joining the club in January 2017 from Old Trafford. His record of 70 combined goals and assists in 97 games for Lyon will be enough to put him on the Citizens radar, and from the sounds of things, The Etihad regulars would love to see him as their latest addition.

The Citizens love the sound of bringing in Memphis Depay at some point, and with the player also interested all it needs is the club to act on it now.
