Lyon happy to grant Depay transfer wish

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas insists he is happy to sanction Memphis Depay’s summer departure after the attacker expressed his desire to leave for one of Europe’s top clubs.

The 24-year-old has played a vital role for the Ligue 1 giants since his transfer from Manchester United back in January 2017, scoring 33 goals in 93 appearances across all competitions.

The mercurial winger revealed earlier in the week that he still hopes to earn a second chance at the highest level in the near future, admitting he would like to play for the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Chelsea, Bayern Munich or Paris Saint-Germain.

Aulas reacted to Depay’s comments on social media, stating that a summer transfer for the former United man would ‘suit him well’.

“Memphis Depay would like to leave Lyon this summer,” he began.

“He comes from MU (Manchester United) to progress to OL. He became a very good European player. He wants to go even higher, in the top 4 and it suits me well.”
