Manchester United winger, Memphis Depay has revealed that he turned down offers from two top premier league clubs, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool before joining Manchester United last summer.
Depay moved to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven for a fee in the region of £31million. Speaking to Dutch newspaper AD, the 21-year-old had this to say:
“I spoke to Liverpool, they were really concrete – but because of an injury in their team they wanted to wait a bit.
“After that Paris Saint-Germain came – they were really concrete too.
“One year earlier, Tottenham Hotspur was interested.
“With SEG, my agency, I sat down and considered everything but then Manchester United came.
“Very quick and very direct. At that moment you immediately know; this is it. This is the absolute top. As a club but also the league,” he explained.
