PSV coach Cocu accepts stars will leave as Man Utd, Real Madrid Man City circle

PSV Eindhoven coach Philipp Cocu admits he fears an exodus of his best players this summer.

Memphis Depay has been linked with Manchester United, Jetro Willems with Manchester City and Real Madrid, while Karim Rekik will return to City after a successful season-long loan.

"You always want more," said the coach to De Telegraaf. "That should be your ambition. But we as a Dutch club also deal with players who want to go abroad.

"It can mean taking a step back.

"But you should not moan about losing players. It's just the reality that you are dealing with as a Dutch club."
