Tottenham have been handed hope over pulling off a deal for PSV star Memphis Depay.
Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has offered some hope to Tottenham Hotspur fans that their side can beat Manchester United to the signing of PSV winger Memphis Depay.
Spurs are reportedly considering a bid for the young Dutch star amid interest from Manchester United.
Goal.com claims Louis van Gaal has advised Depay to stay at PSV for another season, but De Telegraaf claims the player is ready to listen to what Tottenham have to say.
“An offer from Tottenham Hotspur is something that he’ll want to listen to,” reads a report in the Dutch paper.
Spurs are one of the biggest clubs in England so it would be pointless for the 20-year-old to overlook what they have to say.
Van Gaal’s plans on snapping him up seem to be based on a hope that he will listen to the advice of his former coach but Spurs are reportedly in a position where they can offer him a Premier League platform this summer.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy both have big roles to play if Depay is going to become a Tottenham player.
Pochettino’s job is to convince him that Spurs is a better proposition than waiting a year to join Manchester United, while Levy’s job will be to get the best possible value out of any deal with reports of a fee around £15-20 million.
Whether Spurs’ interest prompts United into making a bid of their own remains to be seen but Tottenham are in a good position if the reports of an imminent bid from White Hart Lane are accurate.
