AS Roma have joined the likes of Wolfsburg and AC Milan in the pursuit of Manchester United forward Memphis Depay. The Netherlands international has earned just 12 minutes of league football this season.

The Dutch attacker has failed to earn a single start in the top flight this term, and signs are he could be tempted to pursue a fresh club in the New Year.

Calciomercato claims that the Giallorossi are weighing up a loan offer for the 22-year-old with Mohamed Salah set to miss valuable action due to his commitments for Egypt at the African Cup of nations.

Depay is represented by the same agent as Roma stars Kevin Strootman and Thomas Vermaelen, and a temporary deal will benefit the Red Devils, who coughed up a £25m sum to recruit him from PSV Eindhoven last year.

The forward has appeared in exactly 50 games for Manchester United till date.
