Memphis Depay’s nightmare spell at Manchester United looks set to end with the Red Devils agreeing to sell the Dutch international to Ligue 1 side Lyon.
The French club will cough up £16million for the 22 year-old, although that could rise to £21.7million with add-ons.
Depay was brought to Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal on the back of a superb 2014/15 season in the Netherlands with PSV, with the winger topping the scoring charts and inspiring his side to the Eredivisie title.
Considered one of the best young players on the planet, Depay netted a superb brace in his third start for the Red Devils against Club Brugge.
However, he struggled to live up to the hype and gradually slid down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
This season, Depay has been given a paltry 134 minutes of playing time by Jose Mourinho with only eight minutes of that coming since the end of October.
A man hardly renowned for his patience, Mourinho is now obviously eager to see the back of the youngster.
Overall, Depay netted just seven goals in 53 games for United, a dismal return for such a talented and pricey player ( he cost the club £31million).
Now, he’ll be looking to kickstart his career in France and at 22, he has more than enough time to rediscover his mojo.
