Depay to Lyon

Mon Jan 23, 2017 12:31 pm

Having left United after an indifferent 18 months in a deal that could end up being worth nearly £22 million, he made his Lyon debut yesterday, with their manager seeming to be happy with his display despite the lack of match fitness.

We have a buy back clause, so if he finds his feet, we might see him return. Mourinho seemed very happy with him in the press conference, and it sounds like he only let him go because we're stacked in his position:
Jose wrote:"He was a fantastic professional so if somebody thinks it didn't work because he was not a great professional, that is totally wrong," Mourinho said.

"One thing is some picture somebody takes of him in an amazing car, or dressing in a very specific way, but the image is totally wrong. The guy is a fantastic professional, a kid that respected everyone, worked hard to have more chances, a kid that was frustrated because he was not having that.

"I only have good things to say about him.

"If I can find a little reason - he is a player from one position, the only position, where we have over-booking. He is a winger, and wingers is what we have more of. A position where it is more difficult to have more chances, to be the next choice.

"It is a position where we never have problems - we have Lingard, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Young, Rashford. We have six possibilities and even Wayne Rooney played out on the left.

"We have difficulties even when we have rotation so even then when I was resting players, in the Europa League, the FA Cup, I had seven guys for two positions."

Incredible fee to get for a guy who stunk it up as bad as he did. Looks like he tried to knuckle down this year but he also made his bed last year. Awful signing from van gaal. You'd think he'd know all about depay but still spend that much money to bring him here. Jose really has a great record of getting good fees for players he doesn't use

Even the up front fee is £17 million, so it's pretty good even if he falls on his arse there.

Refreshing to see TBH, most of the time players leave for peanuts.
