Interesting piece by Depay in his new book where he blames mainly himself for not showing how good he can be when he was with us. Seems he has matured as a person. I have no idea if we have a buy back clause but I would resign him if we did.

he was average, shown glimpses of quality but he was young, new country, new environment,

but we didn't have the players to keep him in check and get his head down.

but he hasn't really set the french league alight.

I'm not advocating resigning Depay but 22 goals and 16 assists in his first season in France and 17 goals and 14 assists this season.

39 goals and 30 assists in 89 games across two seasons, directly involved in 69 goals.

That's better than anyone else in playing in Ligue 1 who doesn't play play for PSG. Only Neymar and Mbappe have produced more.

That's phenomenal form. That said he plays best on the left and I don't think he would be a good fit for us. But you need to give him some credit he has done very well in France.

Eds have said there's no such clause, and he seems to have an attitude problem which we don't need any more of.

He's another Ryan babel imo. Better as the big fish.

Shappy don't you think he woukd be better than eg Martial on our left. Depay can pick a pass at least and supply our strikers.

05 Jun 2019 14:24:02
Salford, I feel Depay is one of those player who looks better when he is a big fish in a smaller pond. Zaha is the same.

Some players just can't elevate themselves when moving to a traditional "big" club.

Very few players go to a big club, get a chance, fail and move on only to move back to a big club and be a success.

05 Jun 2019 14:29:47
i stand corrected shappy.

05 Jun 2019 15:24:49
Yeah just like salah, de bryune etc etc etc!

05 Jun 2019 15:30:05
Depay would improve us 100%.

05 Jun 2019 15:47:51
Doesn't he play through the middle for Holland?

05 Jun 2019 16:57:41
Fans, read my post again. I said players who were given a chance at a top club. Neither Salah or Dr Bruyne were given a chance at Chelsea. Both only played a handful of games before being shown the door.

Delay was given plenty of chances, he didn't take any of them. His situation is very different to that of Salah and De Bruyne.

Shappy if Pogba’s off field antics get your goat, you should see Depay’s. Although he does seem to have an affection for United with him posting himself in old shirts with club legends on the back.
I wouldn’t think signing him again would be a good idea. Like going back to an old girlfriend. There were reasons it didn’t work the first time. Mainly his lack of application.
As someone’s said, he’s probably best being the big fish.

05 Jun 2019 18:44:15
Its what he did here that counts. I don't care that he is doing well elsewhere in fact i'm pleased for him.
Depay is a good player but he was crap for us.
The same will happen with the likes of herrera or if they go pogba lukaku martial. whomever.
If they excel elsewhere who cares if they were not doing well for us.
Nobody or very few that get to llay for united are bad players but if they are not good for us who cares if they leave and do well elsewhere.
This is a tough club to play for and its simply not for everybody. Some just can't hack it here. It doesn't matter what the reason is if its not working or looks like it won't work. Get rid and let both parties severe ties and move on. Then don't look back at the coulda woulda shoulda's.

05 Jun 2019 18:53:34
I hear all the reservations about him. Will be interesting to see how he plays for the Dutch against England. I think Ed 02 said that he moved too early to us.

05 Jun 2019 18:57:01
Depay was sold too early or was bought too early. He does have something about him but it might just be too late for him to come back now.

I can see him going to athletico Madrid in a year or two.

Ken, do you think we will be signing Fernandes? . I just read your post on the rumours page.

05 Jun 2019 19:27:35
Mark Hughes.

05 Jun 2019 20:08:03
Well done jred, I know I could count on you to find a player who did it. But let's be honest Hughes retired nearly 30 years ago.

I did say it was very rare, but not impossible. So your one case in nearly 40 years probably does count as rarely. 🤣🤣🤣.

05 Jun 2019 20:34:23
Hughes had 6 years at United before he left. Scored a few goals too and was a decent player.

Depay was fairly crap for us unfortunately.

05 Jun 2019 20:50:36
There was a buy back clause and a sell on clause inserted when we sold him. I remember that being confirmed at the time and I also read it the other day also.

05 Jun 2019 21:37:57
I do singh.

05 Jun 2019 23:14:01
Lets hope so Ken.
