Manchester United make Memphis Depay enquiry, PSV confirm

Manchester United have made an enquiry over the availability of the PSV forward Memphis Depay.
Depay is the Eredivisie’s leading goalscorer and scored in the 4-1 win over Heerenveen on Saturday as Phillip Cocu’s men sealed the league title for the first time in seven seasons.
Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with the 21-year-old, but PSV technical director Marcel Brands has revealed United have made an initial approach.
"We have had a telephone call from them about him," Brands said on Dutch television.
"But no talks have been held yet. There are several top clubs who have expressed an interest."
Brands added Depay, who has scored 20 league goals this season, would cost more than the £14.5m Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur reportedly bid for the striker.
"It will be much higher than the offer from Tottenham Hotspur," Brands added. "He will be very expensive."

Cocu said he expects Depay, who played in last year's World Cup in Brazil, to leave in the summer, along with fellow Dutch international midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
"The chance is really good that they'll both go," Cocu said. "But I do hope we'll be able to keep the rest of the team. A few mutations are not so bad but there must not be too many."
