Manchester United transfer news: Depay's agent comments on interest, sets price tag

The agent of Memphis Depay has commented on reports linking him to Manchester United.

Manchester United continue to be linked with players from around Europe, but one of the lesser known names is Memphis Depay.

Depay, 20, hopes to make a name for himself at this summer's World Cup with Holland, but the winger already has the trust of Louis van Gaal.

The new United boss is expected to give the PSV attacker opportunities in the World Cup warm-up matches and even the tournament itself, with the winger dubbed the 'Dutch Ronaldo' by fans.

Depay would be a fresh face among United's jaded wingers, Nani, Young and Valencia, and is an intriguing signing.

His agent Kees Ploegsma Jr. has been quizzed on the potential deal, and gave mixed answers.

He knows PSV value the winger highly, told Dutch website VI.nl it would take 20 million to clinch his signature.

Perhaps mindful this may be a lot for United, Depay's agent added that the events of the World Cup could sway their minds.

"Memphis should just concentrate on the World Cup and there to show what progress he has made. Then we'll see."

This may be the very message United have told the player, impress us and we'll pay the price your club are asking.

Depay scored 14 goals in all competitions this season and provided 10 assists.
