Barcelona join Juventus in the hunt for Manchester United star

Barcelona are preparing a shock move for Manchester United winger Memphis Depay despite a disappointing debut campaign at Old Trafford last season.

Spanish magazine Don Balon claims that Barcelona are eyeing the 22-year old in case a move for Atletico Madrid Luciano Vietto doesn’t materialise. The Argentine is one of Luis Enriques prime targets, but have identified the Dutchman as an alternative.

Depay had a season to forget at Old Trafford last season following his £25million move from PSV Eindhoven, scoring just two Premier League goals.

Juventus are believed to have already made a £16.7million bid for the winger, a bid which has neither been accepted nor rejected by Manchester United, as Jose Mourinho assesses his squad ahead of the new season.

Memphis will get a chance to impress his new manager on Saturday as United’s stars head to Wigan for their first preseason friendly, before jetting off to China on Monday where they play Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.

If the Dutchman fails to impress, it seems he has plenty of suitors.
