Memphis Depay: Wants more chances at United

AC Milan are back on the hunt for Man Utd misfit Memphis Depay, while some old Tiemoue Bakayoko ‘news’ has made today’s tabloids.


AC Milan want to end Memphis Depay’s Manchester United nightmare, according to a report in Italy.

Tuttomercato claim the 22-year Dutch winger has been made available by Jose Mourinho if they receive the right offer for the out-of-favour player.

Memphis has struggled to recapture his Eredivisie form since moving to Old Trafford for £28.9million last summer. Memphis scored 28 goals and contributed eights assists in 40 games in his final season with PSV and the Holland international was tipped for big things in England.

Mephis though has struggled to adjust to life in England and was reportedly reprimanded by former United boss Louis van Gaal over his attitude and this season he has found himself on the perimeter of Jose Mourinho’s plans.

Serie A heavyweights AC Milan were linked with a summer move for the player and now they are reportedly considering a January move for Depay.



Tiemoue Bakayoko

Manchester United are one of a quartet of Premier League teams chasing Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, says the Daily Mirror via Calciomeracto.

But don’t get too excited United fans. This ‘news’ looks very similar to a Daily Star article, dated August 23. In fact the quotes are identical.

“Juventus saw him play three times this summer,” his agent Michel Boli told Get French Football.

“There’s also interest from Manchester United, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City.

“Leicester City contacted us very recently. Tiemoue’s priority is to stay at Monaco.”

It looks as though Mr Boli is already warming up for the January window or the Daily Mirror have boobed…
