Monitoring From The Other Side

Manchester United receive Memphis Depay development from Lyon.

Memphis Depay has been in great form at Lyon after leaving Man United in 2017.

Ever since Memphis Depay left Manchester United in 2017, fans have kept a close eye on his progress.

The winger joined Lyon after a rough not so good two years at Old Trafford, and has gone on to show the form that persuaded United to spend £30m on him in 2015.

Depay had scored 50 times in 124 appearances for PSV Eindhoven, but only managed seven goals in 50 appearances for United.

At Lyon, the 24-year-old has caught the eye with impressive performances in a more advanced role with the team.

He has 31 goals and 29 assists in just 83 appearances for the French side and has reestablished himself into the Netherlands national side.

United ensured they had a buy-back clause in Depay’s contract, so will be interested in reports from France claiming the player received a public dressing down in front of his teammates at the weekend.

After scoring the winning goal against Angers, Depay told reporters that he feels he is not respected.

And French outlet RMC say Lyon manager Bruno Génésio gave Depay a dressing down in front of the whole squad for his comments.

Given Depay’s form and United’s lack of an out-and-out winger this season, this latest development could see the buy-back clause become more significant.

Kalidou Koulibaly and Douglas Costa move to Old Trafford may have to wait till summer

Man Utd coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has informed the club’s hierarchy he is in need of a new center back defender.

To avoid a similar scenario that played out under coach Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils are ready to give the interim coach the financial support.

Man Utd have seen Senegalese international, Kalidou Koulibaly as the best choice to bring over to Old Trafford to tighten their defense.

According to the report, the Red Devils are ready to part ways with the sum of £98 million to see the Napoli defender arrive at Old Trafford.

However, a new report from Napoli coach, Carlos Ancelotti has made it known that the center back defender will not be leaving in the ongoing January transfer window.

This means Man Utd will have to wait till the end of the season to give it another trial.

Man Utd have also been linked with a move to make a swap deal that will see Douglas Costa move to Old Trafford and Paul Pogba make a return to Turin.

However, Juve in their latest response have disclosed that they can consider the deal at the end of the season.

Does Man Utd need to join in the race for Yannick Carrasco?

A new report has made it known that Man Utd have joined the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Belgium international, Yannick Carrasco.

According to the report, the Red Devils are ready to pay the sum of £173,000 per week for the striker.

Yannick Carrasco’s wife in a statement also confirmed Man Utd interest in the player.

His wife in a statement said that United are “very interested” in signing him. She claimed (RTBF):

“Yes, they’re (Man Utd) very interested. I won’t hide it from you, but nothing has been signed.”

It is however surprising that the Red Devils can be pushing for a move to sign the Belgian striker.

This is because they have the duo of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku performing well at the center forward.

Anthony Martial is in top form with Alexis Sanchez playing the backup role effective.

The duo of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are also effective.

With these players at the forefront, Man Utd can break pass any defense.

Therefore, there is no need to sign a new attacking player rather they should focus on signing a new defender.

One reason that can stop Philippe Coutinho from moving to Old Trafford

It is no secret that Man Utd are making moves to bolster up their defense in the January transfer window and they have been linked with moves to sign Kalidou Kaloubali from Napoli.

However, another report has made it known that the Red Devils are keen on signing a new striker in the person of Brazil star, Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona.

Phillipe Coutinho is likely to make a return to the English premier league owing to the limited playing chances at Camp Nou.

This comes one year after he left Liverpool in a mouthwatering deal of over £140 million to Barcelona.

But the report has made it known that the Brazil star is not keen on leaving the Catalans this January but a move can take place in the summer and the Red Devils are already monitoring the situation.

A report has made it known that Philippe Coutinho will not be able to leave for England because of his family.

The Brazil star’s wife is not keen on leaving Spain to start another life in England again.

Moreover, Barca coach, Ernesto Valverde has made it known that Coutinho is an important player in the team.
