Manchester United winger targeted by European champions

Manchester United winger Memphis Depay is wanted by La Liga champions Barcelona, according to Don Balon.

The Dutchman only joined the club last summer, leaving PSV with a large expectation as he linked up with fellow countryman Louis van Gaal.

But after scoring 22 league goals in his final Eredivisie season, Depay managed just two during his first campaign with the Red Devils. The 22-year-old did manage to score three goals in the UEFA Champions League, including two in their crucial qualifier against Club Brugge.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is reportedly keen on taking Depay away from England already, with Juventus also monitoring the situation at Old Trafford, with fans left frustrated and disappointed often last campaign.

Don Balon claim United would ensure that they don’t make a loss on the Dutchman, and report that Juventus’ £16.7million offer will be beaten by Barcelona’s, as they look to bolster their squad in a search to regain the UEFA Champions League title, currently occupied by rivals Real Madrid.
