Former Man United player issues “come get me plea”


A former Man United player Memphis Depay has issued a “come get me plea” to his suitors as a number of English Premier League sides are interested in his service.

Memphis Depay does not see his future with the French Ligue 1 outfit, Lyon despite helping them to reach the semi-finals in the Champions League.

He seeks another challenge and the English Premier League is a possible destination.

Merseyside outfit Everton are reported to be leading in the race for the signature of the former Manchester United flop and this could be an easy run for them with the player desperate to leave the French Ligue 1in January.

In his four years of stay with Lyon, Memphis Depay is obviously one of the best players in France but with his contract set to expire next summer, there have not been talks of a new deal which makes it apparent that he would be leaving.

However, reports claim that Memphis Depay is comfortable with a return to the English Premier League or will consider offers from the Spanish La Liga as Barcelona have been previously linked.

Everton will be working hard to secure the signature of James Rodriguez in January which could be a hindrance to Memphis Depay’s capture but he could also serve as an addition to the team.
