Manchester United are reportedly interested in re-signing Memphis Depay on a free transfer, with Barcelona willing to terminate his contract before the January transfer window..
The 28-year-old joined Camp Nou from Lyon in July 2021, but he only signed a two-year contract with the Catalan club, which is set to expire at the end of the season.
Memphis has made 41 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions, scoring 14 goals and assisting twice, but he has only played three games this season due to injury.
The Netherlands international’s only goal of the season came against Elche in La Liga in mid-September, but he was ruled out of the World Cup due to a thigh injury..
Memphis has yet to make a World Cup start for his country, having come off the bench in their first two games against Senegal and Ecuador.
The forward is widely expected to leave Barcelona in January, with several clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea, said to be keeping a close eye on the situation.
Man United, on the other hand, are thought to be interested in re-signing the player who played for the Red Devils between 2015 and 2017..
Memphis joined Manchester United after scoring 50 goals and registering 29 assists in 124 appearances for PSV Eindhoven across all competitions..
However, he struggled to make an impact at Manchester United, only managing seven goals and six assists in 53 appearances before moving on to Lyon.
After a successful spell in France, where he scored 76 goals and assisted 55 times in 178 appearances, Barcelona signed him on a free transfer.
Memphis is reportedly ‘on the list’ for Manchester United, who are expected to sign a new forward in January following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.
Plettenberg claims that Red Devils owner Erik ten Hag “can really imagine bringing him back,” and that “contact between all parties” is currently in place..The journalist also claims that Barcelona is willing to terminate the Dutchman’s contract in order to avoid paying his salary for the remainder of the season.
As a result, Manchester United could re-sign the forward on a free transfer, and Ronaldo’s departure has saved the club around £500,000 per week in wages, so there is room in the budget for the Dutchman..
