Milan frontrunners to sign Memphis

Serie A AC Milan are apparently favourites to acquire the services of Memphis Depay in the January transfer window. The Netherlands international has yet to make a Premier League start for Manchester United this season.

Depay, 22, has had a nightmare spell under Jose Mourinho this term with his sole start coming in a 3-1 EFL Cup over Northampton Town at Sixfields.

According to The Express, the Rossoneri are prepared to offer an escape route to the Dutch forward having received the backing from Sino-Europe.

United boss Jose Mourinho has previously insisted that Depay has a role to play for his side in the future, and this indicates the player will move on a temporary deal in the New Year.

German side Wolfsburg have also been credited with interest for the attacker, who has featured in just 12 minutes of league football this season.
