Milan’s target Memphis Depay is ‘more likely to look elsewhere’ if Lyon is not admitted to Europe, said club president Jean-Michel Aulas.
“Memphis told me that he will be ready to discuss the situation when he gets back,” Aulas told Le Progres, adding however that, “His agents said that he is more likely to look elsewhere if we are not participating in Europe next season.”
The Rossoneri showed interest in the 26-year-old, and had already approached him last year. The problem, in this case, is that Milan is not currently in the European spots either, meaning that they may face heavy competition from elsewhere.
Depay’s deal ends in June 2021, and the Dutchman is reportedly recovering from a broken anterior cruciate ligament. Before his knee injury, he scored 14 goals in 18 competitive games this season.
