Van Gaal wants to make the 20-year-old his first summer signing and is ready to pay €13.4 million to secure the services of the left winger.

According to The Sun, the highly-rated Dutch international is top of United’s transfer shortlist and will likely leave Eindhoven despite having three years left to run on his current contract.

Depay, fresh from starring at last year’s World Cup finals in Brazil, has subsequently hit 16 goals in all competitions for the Eredivisie leaders.

Head coach Phillip Cocu will hope to see his star performer deliver the league title to PSV’s trophy cabinet by the end of this campaign before he inevitably moves on.
