Report: Tottenham end interest in Memphis Depay, Manchester United move more probable

PSV Eindhoven

Tottenham have reportedly given up on their hopes of signing PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay.

According to De Telegraaf, Tottenham have pulled out of the race to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay this summer.

With inconsistent displays from the likes of Erik Lamela, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli this season, Spurs need to bring in at least one new winger this summer.

Despite recent reports from the Daily Mail that Tottenham wanted to sign Dutch international Depay, it seems that a deal to take him to White Hart Lane won't be going through now.

Depay, 21, has been with PSV since the age of 12, and after promising cameo roles in Louis van Gaal's Netherlands side at last summer's World Cup, the winger has exploded this season.

22 goals in 36 games is a stunning return from a wide man, with Depay taking the next step in his development - and it seems that a move to the Premier League is inevitable.

However, De Telegraaf believe that Tottenham are now out of the race to sign him, citing that they have ended their interest after failing with a bid to land him last summer.

They also note that, given van Gaal's relationship with the decision makers at PSV and with the player himself, Depay is now most likely to join Manchester United this summer, despite additional interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Spurs fans may be disappointed, and this would leave manager Mauricio Pochettino needing to find alternative targets to solve his problems out wide.
