Man United’s £25m bid set to trump Liverpool

Manchester United are set to beat Liverpool to the signing of highly-rated Dutch attacker Memphis Depay, according to The Mirror.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the PSV Eindhoven winger for over 12 months, with the youngster lighting up the Eredivisie this season.

The report suggests that United are willing to trump Liverpool’s offer of £20 million for Depay, with the Old Trafford outfit ready to spend a cool £25 million to land the Netherlands international.

Red Devils’ boss Louis van Gaal knows his compatriot well after including Depay in his Holland squad for the World Cup, with this personal relationship key in bringing the starlet to Manchester.

Depay has been a leading light for PSV this season, with his side on the brink of clinching the Eredivisie title.

The versatile attacker is one of the most sought-after young players in European football and looks set to be an exciting addition to the Premier League.
