Ligue 1 side Lyon have submitted a proposal, believed to be for a straight transfer, for Dutch winger Memphis Depay, according to our colleagues at RMC.
The amount that Lyon have offered has yet to filter through, with Manchester United’s response also yet to have been given.
The Red Devils have set an asking price at €17m, with the club wanting to sell the player rather than loan him out, a stumbling block that OGC Nice could not overcome when they sounded out the player’s situation in December.
The 22 year old’s advisor is in direct negotiations with Lyon about a potential salary agreement, with the Ligue 1 side prepared and willing to match Depay’s financial demands.
According to Lyon sources, they accept that this deal will be difficult to pull off, but not impossible.
More undoubtedly to follow in the coming days.
