Manchester United have made plans to offload £25million Dutch flop Memphis Depay just a year after signing him, according to the UK Mirror.
The Red Devils’ manager Louis van Gaal is said to have sanctioned the summer departure of his 22-year-old countryman, having run out of patience with the winger bought from PSV Eindhoven last July.
It was reported this week that the Holland international was heading for showdown talks with Van Gaal, and it seems he will be departing Old Trafford at the end of the season.
The Mirror also reports that clubs in both England and on the continent have been sounded out to see if they fancy taking Depay at a beat-down price at the end of the season, but it remains unclear if they have gotten any response.
Depay, who was given the famous No 7 shirt once worn by George Best, Bryan Robson, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, has scored just two Premier League goals.
He was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season, hitting 22 goals as PSV won the title.
Depay signed a four-year contract with United but he has looked a shadow of the player Van Gaal took to the World Cup in Brazil when he was in charge of Holland in 2014.
And his flashy lifestyle off the pitch has only added to his problems.
