Everton have been beaten to the signature of Manchester United winger Memphis Depay by AC Milan, as the Netherlands international has been told by boss Jose Mourinho that he is free to find a new club this month.
Everton were thought to be in pole position to sign the former PSV winger, though the Red Devils’ reluctance to let him to leave on an initial loan deal is said to have put them off making an official bid.
Reports from Italy suggest that Depay is now in discussions with Milan over a January switch, having been restricted to just four league appearances so far this term under Mourinho.
- The 22-year-old’s valuation is around £25 million.
- Depay made the move to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in May 2015.
- The youngster is expected to be joined by Morgan Schneiderlin in leaving Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
