Manchester United are open to signing Barcelona forward Memphis Depay in January as replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo only on one condition.

Manchester United announced on Tuesday that Ronaldo has left the club with immediate effect and Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is keen on signing Depay as a replacement.

According to Spanish media outlet Sport, Manchester United are open to signing Depay in January only if Barcelona grants him a free transfer.

Depay’s Barcelona contract expires at the end of the season and the Red Devils are unwilling to pay a fee to sign the Netherlands international in January.
