PSV Eindhoven manager Phillip Cocu has advised Memphis Depay to turn down offers from the Premier League following the World Cup amid growing interest from Manchester United.
Following an impressive season in the Eredivisie, 20-year-old Depay has continued to enhance his burgeoning reputation with Louis van Gaal's Netherlands side at the World Cup having scored twice en route to the semi-finals.
Van Gaal will begin his duties with United immediately after his country's campaign in Brazil concludes but a growing number of reports suggest he is keen to bring the explosive winger with him to Old Trafford.
Tottenham Hotspur has also been credited with interest in Depay but his club manager Cocu has denied receiving any offers and has urged the young talent to remain at PSV for at least another year before moving on.
"No one has contacted us and he has a contract until 2017 here, so we should not get ahead of ourselves," Cocu told Dutch football magazine, Voetbal International.
"I let Memphis know that it would be good for him to have another year here. He has only one full season behind him. I think you need a certain foundation before making the next step.
"That is independent of the qualities that a person has. Therefore, he must stay at PSV at least one more year. There is no concrete interest so I'm assuming he will report for pre-season training later."
United has already made two signings this summer in Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera, but van Gaal is reportedly keen to bring Depay, one of the brightest attacking talents in the Netherlands side, to the Premier League.
While Antonio Valencia recently signed a new three-year contract at the club, there is real doubt over the futures of Ashley Young and Nani. After a dismal campaign last season, a number of reports suggest former Aston Villa star Young will be discarded by the new manager, while Nani has recently fuelled speculation of his imminent departure, despite signing a new five-year deal just last year.
"I am a United player but there has been some interest on my behalf," he said following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. "I will evaluate it and decide what is the most advantageous for me. A return to Portugal? Right now I don't know."
