Memphis Depay: Man United flop officially joins Lyon

In official news, Memphis Depay has officially signed for Lyon from Manchester United.

The Dutch winger joins the Ligue 1 side for a fee reportedly valued at up to £21.7 million. Man United have also inserted a buy-back clause into his contract with Lyon.

As reported by Sky Sports:

“Lyon will present Memphis Depay on Friday afternoon after completing a deal to sign the Manchester United winger.

Depay makes the move to France for a fee that could rise to £21.7m after 18 months at Old Trafford, having been brought to United by previous manager Louis van Gaal.

He struggled for playing time under Jose Mourinho, who took over from Van Gaal last summer, having made only eight appearances in all competitions this season.

Depay said his farewells to Manchester United on Friday lunchtime, just before Mourinho spoke at his press conference, where he had nothing but praise for the 22-year-old.

Mourinho also confirmed United have a buy-back clause in the Depay deal.”
