Manchester United will have first refusal on Memphis Depay if the Dutchman leaves Lyon in the January transfer window.

Depay, 25, has repeatedly been linked with a return to the Premier League, with Tottenham the latest side to be linked with a move for the forward.

The Dutchman has already scored eleven times this season and could be hot property when the winter window opens.

However, Lyon’s director of football Juninho explained any club wishing to buy Depay would have to hope United passed on their right to re-sign him.

‘Manchester United has the priority if several clubs line up to buy him,’ Juninho said.

‘But we have not received any offers so far. He is really happy right now in Lyon.

‘Rudi (Garcia) will soon make his decision. He is a technical leader. We will discuss an extension of contract by the end of the year.’

Depay signed for United in 2015 in a £31million deal from PSV Eindhoven.

At the time, Depay was one of the brightest talents in Dutch football, but he struggled to live up to that billing at Old Trafford and was eventually sold in 2017.

Depay was asked about the transfer rumours linking him with Tottenham this week, but refused to be drawn into the speculation.

‘I don’t want to talk about that. I don’t want to talk about rumours that I know nothing about,’ he said.

‘We leave it in the corridors. I am focused on a strong season so far.’
