Memphis Depay

I see Spurs have been linked with him. Is there a way back at United for the guy? I assume we’ve lost any sort of buyback clause after he went to Barca.

He’s pushed on a lot since he left us but was unfortunate to join Barca during one of the lowest periods of their recent history. He does well for Holland and may well have good chemistry with a few of the incoming Dutch signings. Plus would presumably be cheap.

Memphis to United. Yay or nay?

I prefer him to Dybala but I honestly don't see it happening.

Why can't we go for someone like Toney. I reckon ETH could turn him into a monster CF.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The xenophobia is real, Toney is a$$
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Xenophobia? If I listed my top 10 United players of all time I reckon 7/8 of them would probably be non British you prat.

Depay has been and flopped so it makes sense why I wouldn't fancy his return.

Dybala has just as many red flags as Di Maria had. It reeks of past transfer dealings that one.

Also why is Toney not good enough? Because he's not got a fancy name? Our new manager turned Haller and Tadic into top players so I don't see why he can't do it with Toney. He showed what he can last season at times. In a better team under a better coach I think he could flourish.

I also think Toney would be a good signing and think he has a lot of potential in a fast forward line for a team under ETH.

Don't think he'd be cheap though, and I don't think he's someone we've ever been linked with and we get linked with everyone ffs.

No I don't think we have. It was just a suggestion / idea.

Seen enough from him last season to suggest he could definitely play at a higher standard. He absolutely terrorised Chelsea at the Bridge I seem to remember.

are you only targeting dutch players or those who played in the dutch league? Seems a bit of a flawed approach.

Did you miss the part where the media hasn't suggested we are targeting Depay and this was just brought up as a suggestion by a member of this forum?

I think Depay could be a sensible option. Enough experience on a big stage to not be fazed by playing for United as he was in his first stint. Familiar with playing in systems comparable to ETH's. Probably more affordable than some alternatives, which gives us space to target a world class centre forward sometime in the future.

Overall, I feel especially unclear about who would be the right goal scorer to bring in. It's less about who is the best player available than who fits Ten Hag's plans best - and we know from studying his previous sides that he deploy very different types of centre forward / false nine.

he may of pushed on a lot but he was horrendous is his spell with us. I dont think he is cut out for a top club or the premier league in general. big no.

I was underwhelmed with Depay before we bought him, even more underwhelmed while we had him and he has failed to whelm me since.

So, no thanks.

Watched depay on a few occasions to see exactly what we missed.

Tbh, I couldnt identify one aspect of his game that our existing players don't already offer

No, no concrete reason, but don't fancy him back again.
