Former Holland international Jan Mulder has declared that long term Manchester United target Memphis Depay is likely to force a move away from PSV Eindhoven in the summer, as reported by the Daily Star.
This will come as a boost to the Old Trafford club, who have been keeping an eye on the talented winger since his excellent displays for Louis van Gaal’s Dutch national side during the summer World Cup.
Mulder believes that Depay has to seize the opportunity and make the switch.
He has admitted that, for the majority of players, the ultimate goal is earning considerable amounts of money from playing football – something that is more difficult to do in the less economically powerful Dutch football leagues.
Mulder said: “You know what I think? The ultimate objective and the dream of a player is not the Dutch national team, but the big money.
“And they don’t even have to apologise for that.
“I don’t know how I would fare if I could have earned so much money. I would have been susceptible to that too I guess.
“If you have set yourself up for the rest of your life with just a signature, as Depay will soon, then you think that, even if subconsciously, I think.”
Man Utd have been struck by several injury hammer blows in recent days, with key first team players David De Gea and Daley Blind both ruled out for their upcoming clash with Arsenal.
