Manchester United Could Offload Dutch Winger This Summer

When Manchester United bought Dutch sensation Memphis Depay in the summer of 2015 for a deal amounting to £25 million, everyone thought that he would develop into one of the most exciting players in the league under the tutelage of Dutchman Louis van Gaal. He had helped his club PSV Eindhoven win the Dutch league title that season and there seemed to be no reason why he would not be able to deliver the goods in Manchester, however things have not turned out the way as it was predicted and now the manager has sanctioned the sale of the winger.

Louis van Gaal is known for being one of the best coaches in the world in terms of his history of developing young players but it seems that the Dutchman has give up on his compatriot after finding it difficult to get the best ouf of him and has now asked the club to look for buyers for the Dutch international in the summer as the club goes on a rebuilding spree. The player has had disciplinary issues since his move to Manchester United last summer and has failed to follow Louis van Gaal's instructions when it came to the football, which became the last straw for the manager.

The club has now intimated agents across Europe that the winger is now on the market and the club are prepared to take a hit on their initial investment of £25 million if it means that they would be able to get the player off their wage bill. The club hierarchy simply do not believe he will ever come good and his attitude has been the biggest bone of contention within the club. The powers that be at Manchester United had high hopes from the highly rated Dutch winger and they made it clear when the player was given the iconic number 7 jersey. The number had been worn by former United greats George Best and David Beckham, which is why it must have come as a shock for the club when the whole thing did not work out as expected.
