Manchester United are considering a move to sign PSV Eindhoven star Memphis Depay later in the summer, according to the Mirror.

The 21-year-old impressed for the Dutch national team under Louis van Gaal at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He has continued his form for the national team to his club this season, scoring 16 goals and managing three assists from 22 league games.

Depay came up through the ranks of PSV's youth set-up and broke into their first team in 2011. He is valued to be around £15m ($22.2m) and the report claims the winger is set to leave his current employers after the end of the ongoing campaign.

United's Premier League rivals Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were keen on signing the Dutch international before the start of this season and have still maintained their interest in signing the winger.

PSV manager Phillip Cocu has already admitted that Depay will leave the Eredivisie this summer. It has alerted several clubs in England as United's arch rivals Liverpool and also Tottenham are in the race to secure the star winger's services.

However, the Mirror reports the sources close to Depay claims the player set his heart on making a switch to Old Trafford, which will give him a chance to work again under Van Gaal.

The Telegraph claims Depay is dubbed to be the "new Arjen Robben." He dropped a massive hint that he will leave PSV for United after the winger earlier favourited a tweet saying "Man United has a lot of money for Depay," only to remove it later.

Southampton assistant manager Erwin Koeman believes Depay will fit well in the Premier League. The Saints also made an approach for the Dutchman, only to see their offer being turned down by PSV.

"With his style, he (Depay) would fit well in England. Memphis is fast, focused and physically strong. Southampton would have been an excellent springboard for him to the very top of the Premier League," Koeman said earlier in December.

"Here he would have had time to get used to the level and would have had two Dutch coaches who have great confidence in him, but he did not sit down and chose to stay at PSV. Too bad for us, but also for him."
