PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay scored his second international goal in the Netherland’s 2-0 win over Chile last night and in doing so, the 20 year old probably put another £10m on his suggested transfer fee.
Depay had been linked with a move to either Tottenham or Manchester United almost as soon as his long range effort hit the back of the Australian net last week but is a move away from Holland really likely at this stage of his career?
According to the press, the winger is set to leave the Philips Stadium this summer but a more likely destination is Madrid with Real set to outbid both English clubs for the man dubbed as the new ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’.
This one had always seemed like a long shot but after yesterday’s goal, it is probably confined to the list of non starters. Depay only needed to tap the ball in from Arjen Robben’s cross but the pace and ground covered to get there was quite incredible.
A £17m transfer fee was quoted at the start of the week but this is set to rise as the tournament progresses. Do Spurs still have a sniff or should we start looking elsewhere?
