EPL: Man United reject on Barcelona radar

Memphis Depay was a flop at Man United after joining the club to serve as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, the reason why he was made to leave the club without fulfilling his potential.

The potential in Memphis Depay was seen in Lyon when he joined the French Ligue 1 outfit and impressed in the few years he has stayed with the club, helping them to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League this season.

It is now reprised that he is ready to leave the Ligue 1 outfit as there are no signs of talks for a new contract for him despite having about 12 months left to the end of his current deal.

Reports from Mundo Deportivo claims Spanish La Liga outfit, Barcelona are now interested in his signature and are expected to make a move before the end of the summer transfer window.

The report claims that the Spanish giants will request a player swap as they are willing to include French defender Samuel Umtiti in the deal because he has been declared as surplus to what is required at Camp Nou.
