Memphis Depay could be on his way to return to the Premier League and wear a red shirt once again. However, he’s not expected to return to Manchester United – he’s likely to join Liverpool instead.
According to a report from English tabloid The Sun, Depay’s cryptic message on his Instagram account would suggest he’s Anfield-bound. The Dutch midfielder uploaded an image with the caption “Merci Lyon” wearing a red suit and boarding a red plane. Could that be enough to suggest he’s joining The Reds?
For what is worth, Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Depay in recent months, especially considering one of Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah are likely to leave the club this summer.
Depay seems mature enough to return to the Premier League. He’s coming off an impressive year with Lyon where he scored nine goals and provided 13 assists, and also emerged as a key contributor for the Netherlands national team that will participate in the final round of the UEFA Nations League in the upcoming weeks.
It remains to be seen whether Depay will end up joining Liverpool or if he’ll be playing elsewhere instead. But all signs indicate he’s not going to play for Lyon in the 2019/20 season.
