Brands on interest in Depay, “Three big clubs have reported, including PSG and Manchester United.”

He added on Manchester United, “We have had a phone call from there, but no further talks have taken place.”

Gerbrands then went on to talk about the price tag that they have set on Depay, with interested clubs being told they will have to put up big money to sign the winger who is under contract until 2018.

He said, “In the winter there was a bid of around €20m. Now we’re talking about higher amounts when it comes to Memphis.”

“He is a very costly boy.”

Georginio Wijnaldum and Jetro Willems have been linked with moves away from PSV as well this summer, but Brands stated they were yet to hear from any interested clubs.
