Man Utd fans beg club not to re-sign Memphis Depay as they fear another failed return like Cristiano Ronaldo
MANCHESTER UNITED fans are begging the club NOT to re-sign Memphis Depay.
The Red Devils are hoping to sign a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo in the upcoming January window following his recent exit.
They’ve already missed out on Cody Gakpo, who’s agreed a £37m deal with Liverpool.
United have also been linked with Gakpo’s Netherlands team-mate Depay, who endured a disappointing spell at Old Trafford between 2015 and 2016.
The Dutchman scored just seven goals in 53 matches before leaving for Lyon.
Depay did go on to become a revelation in France which earned him a switch to Barcelona.
Regardless, some United fans are fearing there could be a repeat of Ronaldo’s miserable return should they bring the 28-year-old back to the Theatre of Dreams.
And supporters have expressed their concerns on social media.
One said: “No. We took other players back and look what happened. Pogba and Ronaldo.”
A second replied: “Because he’s been great at Old Trafford in the past? No. Let’s have no more returning players.”

Another chimed in with: “No absolutely no, we have Sancho and Antony, so no.”
While a fourth said: “No way! He is massively overrated.”
United coped well in their first Prem game without Ronaldo though, as they swept aside Nottingham Forest to move within one point of the top four.
