PSG attempted to hijack Memphis Depay’s move to Lyon

PSG Director of Football Patrick Kluivert attempted to hijack Dutch winger Memphis Depay’s transfer from Manchester United to Lyon this week, President Aulas and L’Équipe have claimed.

Aulas claimed to reporters last night that PSG outbid Lyon in the final hours before Depay was due to sign for OL, but in the end the Dutchman decided to stick with the Lyon project.

Aulas is understood to have been informed about this attempt on the part of PSG by Depay’s agents.

This attempt to bring in another wide player from Kluivert furthers the assertion in the French press in recent weeks that PSG do not have a particularly coherent January window transfer strategy, with Les Parisiens having many wingers in their current squad already.
