First touted as a Roma target, followed by Everton and now Nice, Memphis Depay is now the subject of a bid from Lyon, according to RMC Sport.

On Thursday afternoon, French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi tweeted that Manchester United and the Ligue 1 side were in talks about a possible transfer for the Dutch winger, and that a ‘concrete bid’ had been placed.

However, the two clubs were also said to be ‘far’ from an agreement, suggesting the Ligue 1 side’s first offer wasn’t anywhere near what Ed Woodward wants for a player the club paid close to £30m for.

Mohamed Bouhafsi also revealed, when replying to a Manchester United fan on Twitter, the Premier League club were looking to recoup at least €17m from any deal involving Memphis Depay.

The news follows L’Equipe’s claims that Lyon had contacted former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal about both Depay and Adnan Januzaj, as they look to bolster their attacking options for the second half of the season.

The former PSV star has barely featured under José Mourinho this season, making only eight appearances so far this season, totalling to a measly 134 minutes of football overall.

Whether the deal between the two clubs is regarding a loan or a full transfer remains to be seen, but the likeliest option, considering Lyon aren’t blessed with unlimited finances, will be a loan with a view to buy at the end of the season.
