Rumors know no window: Memphis’ Twitter game lending truth to big money Manchester United rumors


Electric PSV attacker Memphis Depay continues to be linked with a $30 million move to Manchester United, and his work on Twitter has fueled the fire a bit.

Memphis, 21, broke out last season en route to a World Cup appearance with the Netherlands, where he scored against Chile and Australia, and has absolutely thrived this season. He has 22 goals in 27 matches across all competitions, usually playing on the wing.

He’s also been linked with Tottenham amongst other locations, but his “favoriting” of a Tweet elevated his status in the papers. To those unfamiliar with Twitter, when a Dutch site put out a link that Memphis would be joining the Red Devils for big money, the PSV man essentially highlighted it for anyone who was looking.

He later un-favorited it. Media in 2015, y’all.

The rumor last summer was that Louis van Gaal told Memphis to wait a year before heading to England. Could it be happening on LVG’s schedule?
