Bild: Dortmund eye Milan-linked Lyon star as replacement for Man Utd bound winger

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will face competition from Germany should they wish to try and sign Memphis Depay this summer according to a report.

Numerous sources have linked Milan with a move for Depay over the past few weeks and months as the management are always attentive to low-cost opportunities, with the Dutchman’s deal set to expire at the end of the season.

In December, Pietro Balzano Prota reported on Twitter that there is a name that all the management like from Gazidis to Maldini and Pioli, and it is that of Depay. For now there are no negotiations, he added, but the Rossoneri leadership are assessing what to do.

As reported by the German newspaper BILD (via MilanLive), Borussia Dortmund consider Depay as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, who seems set to move to Manchester United at some point – potentially in the summer.

Given that he is expected to collect a sum close to or above €100m, they would absolutely have no problem in tabling an offer to Depay.
