Agent gives hint that United could be closing in on Memphis Depay

Manchester United and Memphis Depay have again made the headlines following a tweet from a football agent.

According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, one of the agents who represents Memphis Depay has given a hint that he could be closing in on a move to Manchester United.

The 21-year-old Netherlands international has been in brilliant form for his current club PSV Eindhoven this season, scoring 26 goals and setting up an additional six to date.

With 48 senior goals to date, he is the kind of player who would be a fantastic addition and a swift fan favourite at Old Trafford, but they are unlikely to be alone in their reported pursuit of the winger.

As reported by the MEN, SEG football agent Carl Thomas tweeted a picture of United’s Carrington training ground on Friday, the day on which Depay allegedly discussed a potential move to the Premier League (according to the same report).

“Nice day in Manchester,” Thomas wrote in the message that accompanied the photograph.

It remains to be seen if that message indicates Depay is close to a move, if he is keeping his options option or if Thomas was simply enjoying a day at the complex given that his agency represents other United players.

But with each new tidbit of information, United fans are likely to become increasingly excited.
