Arsenal target Depay ‘would want Man United’ return announces Gunners legend Pires
Arsenal legend Robert Pires has claimed that midfielder Memphis Depay would want a move back to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, to redeem himself.
United decided to offload Depay in 2017 after the winger failed to make the kind of impact that many expected after his big money move to Old Trafford, but the Dutchman has re-established himself in France with some eye-catching patches of form and his performances have actually linked him with a move back to the Premier League.
It is no secret that boss Unai Emery is keen to add a bit more width to his side in the summer, despite many believing that he already has a top-class attack, while United have been keeping an eye on Depay since he left the club, believing that he would eventually come good.
But Pires has admitted that Depay would love a chance to redeem himself at Old Trafford after failing so miserably first time around.
‘I think Depay wants to come back to the Premier League and he feels he has unfinished business in England,’ Pires told Bwin.
‘It didn’t work out for him at Manchester United and Depay is a very proud player.
‘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.’
Would he be welcome back at United?
United are keeping a very close eye on Depay and if he continues to impress like he has been over the past few seasons, there is no bad reason why he could not make a move back to Old Trafford and get things right.
