Liverpool Want To Sign Depay As Replacement For Mane If He Leaves For Real Madrid
Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Memphis Depay ahead of a summer move.
Depay, 25, endured a nightmare spell at Manchester United between 2015-2017 though he's resurrected his career in France with Lyon.
Last season, he chipped in with 22 goals across all competitions. He's bagged eight goals this term with clubs around Europe monitoring his development.
One of his suitors appears to be Liverpool. According to Mirror, the Reds want Depay as a replacement for Sadio Mane should he leave for Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
Real Madrid are planning a major summer overhaul with Mane a reported target for Zinedine Zidane.
If a move transpires, Liverpool will look to sign Depay. The report claims he'll cost in the region of £50 million.
Liverpool have no intention of selling Mane but a concrete offer could spice things up.
Mane's enjoying a prolific season for Liverpool. He's weighed in with an impressive 20 goals in all competitions including 17 goals in the Premier League.
Depay harbours ambition of playing for a big club and Liverpool would certainly fit the bill.
There's a mixed reaction among Liverpool fans about the Dutchman potentially plying his trade at Anfield.
