However after some impressive performances this season, PSV boss Phillip Cocu has conceded that his prized asset is expected to leave the club sooner rather than later.

Speaking to Dutch publication Helden, he said: “Of course Memphis will be sold, you can’t stop that but it’s okay.

“It’s great you can build up a player like him, who breaks through, succeeds at PSV then leaves the club when he’s ready for a bigger step. That’s great.

“I really thought it would be the best for him if he stayed here with us. It’s important for him to play around fifty matches in a season before he makes the next step.

“Nothing else makes you a better player than a lot of games. He can become way better, he’s so explosive.”

Depay has already scored an amazing nine goals in just 10 games during the current campaign.
