depay dhfjThe 20-year-old, who is currently out for six to eight weeks after injuring his groin, signed a new deal to stay with PSV until 2018 in the summer, but the speculation over an exit from the Eindhoven club will not go away.

Speaking to Onda Cero, Spanish journalist Alberto Pereiro stated that Depay is being closely watched by Spanish giants Real Madrid, who see him as a potential long term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pereiro said, “Real Madrid follows Depay closely but at the moment it is still an expensive operation to capture him.”

Depay, who has already scored eight goals this season, was heavily linked to both Manchester United and Tottenham in the summer.
