Spanish giants Real Madrid are set to rescue Memphis Depay from his struggles at Manchester United, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Memphis, 21, signed for United in the summer, putting pen to paper on a £150,000-a-week deal (per the Daily Telegraph) and initially looked like a great signing for the Red Devils, but things have taken a turn in the opposite direction.
The young Dutch star was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season with 22 goals for PSV as they won the title.
After scoring just once for United in the Premier League, though, and rumours of trouble behind the scenes, he has lost his place in the side and now Louis van Gaal is preferring to play Anthony Martial out of position on the left wing.
Also, youngster Jesse Lingard is getting a lot more action than Memphis – who scored two goals at the World Cup last summer – currently is, and Real Madrid are now rumoured to be interested.
The Telegraph believe that the Spanish giants – currently top of La Liga – are keen on signing the Dutch forward and “rescuing” him from his nightmarish start to life in Manchester.
United have been lacking in the attacking third in recent weeks and went into their Champions League game at home to CSKA Moscow last night on the back of three straight goalless draws.
Memphis still couldn’t get in the side so it says a lot about Van Gaal’s current opinion of the forward.
