In statements published with the Mirror, Arsenal legend Robert Pires has advised former Manchester United player Memphis Depay to join United.
Depay has played a starring role in taking the Netherlands to the Nations League finals. He was once hailed as the next star for Manchester United but failed to live up to the expectations over two seasons in Manchester. The Dutch striker joined United in the summer of 2015 and left in the January of 2017.
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah may have won the golden boot but the fact remains that Klopp needs more capable back-ups should either of the front three go on an injury absence.
His great chemistry with all his team-mates was on display this Thursday against Belarus. Depay started the game with a goal very early before scoring one more in the second half. He assisted the two other Netherlands goals.
Klopp has been advised by Robert Pires to sign the player and give him a chance to prove the Red Devils wrong. Here’s Pires talking to the Press:
“He perhaps feels he wasn’t given a chance to perform and earn the right to stay longer considering he was so young and showed glimpses of undoubted potential. Depay might want to return to Manchester United or he might be motivated to prove them wrong by performing for one of their rivals in the Premier League.”

Various reports peg a transfer for Depay at £45 million. If he does choose to return to the Premier League, Liverpool will be a great fit for both player and club.
