Barcelona star on Manchester United's radar

Reports said Manchester United are interested in Barcelona’s Memphis Depay.

Depay joined the Spanish powerhouse on a free transfer last summer after his contract with Lyon expired.

He went on to open 2021/22 as Barcelona’s main striker, scoring four goals and making two in his first eight La Liga games of the season.

However, due to a host of injuries, a change of manager and a busy January for Barcelona, ​​Depay is now a very marginal option.

The 28-year-old has scored twice in his last five league games in 2021/22, but struggled to complete 90 minutes in any of those matches.

Instead, La Blaugrana was counting on Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to achieve most of their goals.

Barcelona have also since terminated the signing of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, pushing Depay further down the attacking standings.

As a result, it comes as no surprise to see that Depay is tipped to exit the Camp Nou this summer.

Manchester United are interested in his reunion with Depay, and the Catalan club is already considering two offers for its non-favorite star, it is reported.

transport expert Gerard Romero He claims United have “always been interested” in launching a concrete campaign for Depay this summer.

Two unnamed Premier League teams have already submitted bids for Barcelona, ​​but both have not reached their asking price of £17m.
