Roma hope to beat a long list of admirers by lodging a loan offer, which includes the option to buy outright for £21 million, a fee just shy of that United paid PSV in 2015

Manchester United could be set to recoup most of what they paid for Memphis Depay, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The 22-year-old is not currently in Jose Mourinho's first-team plans, making just four substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is reportedly keen to keep the Netherlands international in England with a loan move, but now faces competition from Roma.

The capital side hope to beat Serie A rivals Juventus and Napoli to Depay's signature by confirming their interest with a first official loan bid.

The move would give Roma the option to make the move permanent for €25 million (£21m), just shy of the £25m paid to PSV in 2015.
