Leicester City And Crystal Palace Among Ideal Destinations For This Manchester United Star

Memphis Depay is one of the players who has been strongly linked with an exit this January. Jose Mourinho had decided against offloading players immediately after coming in but halfway through the season, he has zeroed in a number of players, who he believes are surplus to requirements.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is clearly one of them but more importantly it seems to the end of the road for Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin as Jose Mourinho has revealed they would be allowed to leave if the right offer comes along.

With Everton odds on to sign Schneiderlin, Depay is yet to find a firm bidder which will see him escape the long period of inactivity which has mirrored his stay in the last few months. With a number of teams looking for reinforcements and the option to strengthen in the winter, let us take a look at 3 possible clubs in England which could be ideal destinations for the Dutchman.

LEICESTER CITY

Although not a club usually associated with established names, Leicester can do much worse than sign Memphis Depay. The Foxes have miserably failed to replicate their heroics of last season and are uncomfortably close to the relegation zone. And with Champions League football scheduled to restart in a months time, they surely need more cover and depth if they are to finish at a respectable position.

The likes of Mahrez and Vardy have failed to get going this season and with Mahrez off to the AFCON, there is a serious lack of depth on the wings. Depay would be an upgrade on any player they have on the wing and the Foxes should test the waters with a bid.

CRYSTAL PALACE

Sam Allardyce has taken over from Alan Pardew who had overseen just 6 wins throughout last year. And till now, it does not look as if things have changed a lot. Winless in his first four matches in charge, where his side has scored just twice surely raises questions of the attackers at his disposal.

FBL-WC-2018-SVK-ENG

With Christian Benteke injured, Wilfried Zaha at the African Nations Cup and on-loan Chelsea striker Loic Remy making a delayed 45-minute debut at the Macron after injury, Depay won’t be a bad option to turn to. Palace need to string together a few wins and with the finances available, Depay is someone they can definitely pursue.

EVERTON

The Toffees have been strongly linked with the Dutchman and Koeman is reportedly interested in bringing his fellow country man on board at the Goodison Park. Koeman has reiterated that he needs to make a number of changes to his side and after their FA Cup exit, things are looking more likely.

Also, Yannick Bolasie’s season-ending injury has made Depay’s pursuit even more viable and urgent.
