OGC Nice President Jean Pierre Rivère moved to rule out a deal with Manchester United for Dutch winger Memphis Depay, speaking to RMC last night.
“We looked at him, like a lot of clubs have, but it is extremely complicated… It is a situation which is out of our financial reach. You have a club that bought him for a certain amount, that wants to sell him. When we looked at Depay, it was in another way, which is not possible today. He was bought very expensively by Manchester United, they want to possibly sell him and we cannot compete in this sort of situation.”
