MN: Very authoritative sources confirm Milan are monitoring Memphis Depay’s situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a keen interest in signing Lyon star Memphis Depay this summer, according to a report.

The Rossoneri have been persistently linked with a move for the Netherlands international as they look to add attacking firepower ahead of the probable arrival of Ralf Rangnick as the club’s new manager.

Calciomercato.com recently reported that negotiations for a renewal between Lyon and Depay aren’t proceeding as hoped and the parties are still very far apart, with Milan in talks over a deal that could cost €30m.

According to what MilanNews describe as ‘very authoritative sources’, Milan are following the situation of Depay closely. There is a lot of competition – including from other clubs in Italy – but the fact his deal expires in 2021 means a deal could be done cheaper than before.

Milan are pondering whether or not to make an assault for Depay, who had 14 goals in 18 games before his cruciate ligament injury late last year.
