Sky: Milan could launch move for Lyon star and Barcelona target Depay – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still interested in Lyon star Memphis Depay and could make a move to try and sign him on a free transfer, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with a move for the Dutchman over the past few days and weeks as he appears to be one of the big opportunities of the January market, given his contract expires in June 2021 so he could leave in a cut-price deal.

It is Barcelona that have been most strongly linked though, and journalist Ekrem Konur claimed on Twitter that the LaLiga giants are in talks with Depay over the possibility of a move to the Nou Camp where the Dutchman would reunite with compatriot Ronald Koeman.

According to Sky Italia, Milan have been after Depay in the past, as early as 2018 – when the market was still managed by Massimiliano Mirabelli – and also last summer, as part of a possible swap with Paquetà.

His name could be back in fashion for the Rossoneri and other top European clubs as early as this January, given that the agreement for the renewal of his contract with Lyon is still missing.

    I think this is a baseless rumour.

    Milan have three players on the left-wing. Newly purchased Hague, Recently redeemed Rebic and young sensation Leao. None of these three would be sold, hence it is unlikely Depay would be joining.

    1. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

      Depay plays as a LW, AM and CF effortlessly, if we can try to seal this coup, then we just got ourselves a versatile forward who can effortlessly cover for Rebic, Hakan or Zlatan… I hope there’s a chance though as I really really like Depay a lot.

      1. Inertia says:

        Depay is a very good player, but he is definitely not coming because we are well covered in that role – we have 2-3 players there, most of them very recently acquired. It’s the same with Papu Gomez.

  2. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

    We are not well covered in CF though… I know with Barcelona in the mix, it’s gonna be difficult for us, but hell if he joins, he will play more of CF. He definitely has a role to cover… Zlatan is a Ferrari, can’t play every match, plus, he’s 39, Depay is 26, the post Zlatan already around? Just a dream though

    Completely baseless. Most of the things today have been. Most importantly, Depay has said many times that he only wants Barcelona, so again why would go for someone who see us as second fiddle. We all understand that Milan has not won anything in a while, but last I checked we are still Milan, and we are about to enter another good cycle it seems. If a player isn’t able to see that, or wants something else, then we need to look elsewhere also. There are much better options than him either way.
