​Lyon confirm interest in Man Utd wide-man Depay

Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has confirmed Manchester United winger Memphis Depay is his "number one priority" in the January transfer window.

United have rejected a bid for the player from the French club who they signed for £31m from PSV Eindhoven in 2015.

"This is my number one priority, I'm a fan of this player, he has an interesting profile for us," Genesio said.

Depay had played just eight times for United this season while Everton are also thought to be keen on the Dutchman.
