Manchester United flop Memphis Depay and Lyon agree on transfer

French sports newspaper L’Equipe have confirmed Memphis Depay has agreed to sign for Ligue 1 side Lyon. 

The Manchester United flop was predicted to become a star after his breakout season with Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

Depay’s last two years have been nothing short of a nightmare, managing to score only two Premier League goals. The Red Devils have knocked back Lyon’s last three bids of 12 million, 15 million, and 17 million euros. Just like FIFA right?

Not exactly. L’Equipe believe the two clubs are still in complicated talks, as United look to make maximum profit off the attacking midfielder.

Luckily for Depay, he has age on his side. Lets hope the French outfit can be a similar story to Balotelli’s career saving move to Nice.
