Ex-Liverpool and Dutch attacker Dirk Kuyt has advised fellow compatriot Memphis Depay to choose Liverpool over Manchester United as his next destination. The A?20million rated PSV Eindhoven forward has been linked with several big clubs, but Liverpool and their rivals Manchester United are believed to be the frontrunners to sign him.
Recent reports suggested that Depay has the maximum chances of landing at Old Trafford, but former Liverpool man Dirk Kuyt has urged Memphis Depay to join The Reds.
Kuyt opined, a I look through red glasses, because Ia ve played six years for Liverpool. Only when Memphis does that, he will realize how big Liverpool are.
a Of course it would be an advantage at Manchester United because he knows the manager.
On the other hand, it is important at his age that he plays every week. Thata s the only way he can develop.a
Kuyt believes that the move will be beneficial for the young talent who is in sublime form this season for the Eredivisie league leaders. The striker has netted 21 times in the tournament and in all probability will bag the Golden boot award. In this prime form, Kuyt believes that Depay needs regular time, which only Liverpool can guarantee him and not Manchester United.
Although it is believed that the presence of Dutch manager Louis van Gaal at the helm of affairs at Old Trafford may prove to be a driving force for Memphis Depay.
