Marca may have denied Real Madrid being in the picture for Sadio Mane, but others have continued to beat that mule. Now they are supposed to go one step further and suggest a replacement.
This time it is none other than former Manchester United player Memphis Depay. His last stay in England was not much of a success but the lad’s been hard at work with Lyon.
The center-forward is 25 years old and by no means done with his peak, so this transfer could make sense. Especially in light of how he has been building himself back in France after what happened in Manchester.
Most ambitious players (such as Salah in the past) would love to join another English club to prove their doubters wrong. Will it be Liverpool for Depay? We’ll know soon enough.
