Man Utd fans urge club to RE-SIGN Memphis Depay after Netherlands beat Germany | Football | Sport
Memphis Depay was the star of the show as a new-look Netherlands side beat Germany 3-0 at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
The former Man United man scored one and caused Joachim Low’s side problems all evening.
Liverpool pair Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum were also on target in Amsterdam.
Ronald Koeman’s team became the first Dutch side to beat Germany in over 16 years.
Germany now only have two points from their League A, Group 1 matches and travel to World champions France this week.
After Depay’s dazzling display, United supporters took to Twitter to beg their club to re-sign the forward.
Depay departed Old Trafford back in 2017 in a bid to revive his career which failed to take off in Manchester.
“Nobody deserved a a goal in this game more than Memphis Depay. Good for him. Bet Man United wishes they had him back,” one fan said.
“@ManUtd should re-sign Memphis Depay immediately. That kind of pace, energy, accuracy and entertaining football upfront is currently lacking at OT,” another fan claimed.
Jose Mourinho revealed that the club did place a buy-back option on Depay upon sale to Lyon.
“He didn’t succeed in his 18 months but he’s very young so I think it’s important for the club to complete control of this talent and we all wish he plays very, very well at Lyon and why not to come back because everyone here likes him,” the United boss said.
“Come back to @ManUtd Depay!!!”, “Orange Football is back! Memphis Depay has been an absolute beast in this game! @ManUtd recall him back in January! #NEDGER,” another fan begged.
Another added: “Depay has improved so much man its insane. Thought his career was over after Man United tbh.”
Depay registered 19 goals and assisted 13 times last campaign for Lyon.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has taken a rather stubborn approach when it comes to listening for offers for his players in recent times.
This summer he did his best to prevent Nabil Fekir from joining Liverpool before the deal eventually collapsed due to concern over his knee.
