Mancster United, Arsenal still stand a chance to sign Aouar and Depay


Lyon’s Sporting director has revealed that they are yet to receive any offer from any club for Arsenal and Man United targets, Houssem Aouar and Memphis Depay, respectively.

The Red Devils are linked with a move for their former player Memphis Depay as he is reported to have told the French Ligue 1 outfit of his decision to leave the club this summer transfer window.

Reports had claimed that the Red Devils do not stand a chance to make an attempt for the signature of their former player because he has already agreed on a move to Spanish La Liga outfit, Barcelona.

However, with the latest report credited to the Lyon chief, both Arsenal and Man United can still sign their targets with Juninho confirming that they have not received any bid for the duo.

This has been confirmed by Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman who claimed that the club will have to sell before they can pay for Memphis Depay’s signature despite claims that they have already agreed on personal terms.

The same opportunity still presents itself to the North London outfit who are also interested in Houssem Aoura. From the statement by the club chief, he is still available and they are awaiting offers.
