Depay: I Snubbed Bayern For United

share on:

Apparently Memphis Depay snubbed Bayern for a chance to work with LVG at Manchester United.

Depay left PSV to join United this summer on a four-year deal believed to be worth €30 million.

PSG revealed that United hijacked their bid for the Dutchman and apparently that’s not the only team he snubbed.

“There were discussions with nearly all the top clubs,” he told Sport Bild. “Bayern were one of them but, in the end, Manchester United came out on top.”

“I can’t say who the best coach in the world is,” Depay replied when asked if he was tempted to work with Bayern boss Pep Guardiola.

“There are definitely a lot of good and well-known managers and Pep Guardiola is certainly one of them.

“But I only spoke to Louis van Gaal and he totally convinced me. He gave me the feeling that I was very important for him not only as a player but also as a person – and then it was clear that I would go to Manchester United.”
