AC Milan are interested in signing Netherland International Memphis Depay, who is reportedly valued for around £25m by French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon.

Depay was regarded as the man that would finally replace Cristiano Ronaldo by Manchester United faithfuls and pundits when he arrived at Old Trafford in June 2015 from PSV Eindhoven.

But he couldn’t live up to the hype of replacing Ronaldo, who is one of the greatest players to grace the game of football, Depay endured the worst 18 months of  his career at United, the skilled winger started 16 Premier League games for Manchester United and scored just two goals.

After series of poor performances and lack of game time, Manchester United sold the Dutch winger to Lyon in January 2017 and Depay has since got his career back on track in France with series of man of the match performances for Lyon.

The 24-year-old talented winger has scored amazing 14 goals in 44 appearances in Ligue 1 for Lyon and he is now wanted by many top European teams.

According to Tuttosport, AC Milan are hoping to sign the former PSV Eindhoven play-maker in the summer transfer window opens.

Lyon would love to keep their man given his strong performances for the Ligue 1 outfit so far this season, but if an offer of around £25million comes for Depay they would be open to negotiate.
