Tottenham have been relatively consistently linked with a summer move for exciting Dutch winger Memphis Depay, who has been lighting up the Eredivisie this season with his shows of skill and lots of goals. With Manchester United also said to be keen on the Netherlands international, it is widely accepted that the young star with leave his homeland at the end of the campaign, with a scrap against the Old Trafford club on the cards for his signature. In bad news for Spurs, Depay has hinted that a possible move to Manchester is in his thoughts. The Manchester Evening News have reported that Depay has favoured a post that linked him with a move to Louis van Gaal’s men on Twitter, before it was taken down not long afterwards. The link between Depay and compatriot Van Gaal is undeniable, especially given that the former Netherlands head coach brought the young star to Brazil for the World Cup in the summer. With national team colleagues Robin van Persie and Daley Blind both at United also, it is fair to say that they have the potential upper hand in the race for Depay’s signature. However, when it comes down to it, Spurs could well trump United to sign Depay. The 21-year-old will clearly want to play Champions League football next season, and if Tottenham can secure a top-four finish at United’s expense it could well have a bearing on his decision. This will start with the fixture against them this weekend and gives Spurs even more incentive to go to Old Trafford and record a positive result. With United also expected to make drastic changes across the board in the summer, the Manchester club could well put Depay down the list of their transfer priorities as they look to add world-beaters and in particular defenders. If Spurs can go all out to sign him, guarantee him first-team football and pay PSV’s asking price, it could well force the player’s hand. I have said previously that Depay has all the attributes that Spurs need to fill the troublesome right wing berth in Pochettino’s 4-2-3-1 system and making him our top priority this summer is something that seemingly will have to happen for him to end up at White Hart Lane.
