The 22-year-old winger is still far from a move to the Ligue 1 outfit as they toil to reach an accord over his transfer fee with Manchester United

Manchester United winger Memphis Depay has agreed personal terms with Lyon, but a transfer to the Ligue 1 side still remains some distance off, L’Equipe reports.

Although the Netherlands international, 22, is satisfied with the package that he will receive should he move to the Rhone Valley, the Old Trafford club are not content with the transfer fee that OL have offered.

Lyon, who lie fourth in Ligue 1, have made three offers for the attacker, but their latest bid of €17 million has been rebuffed by the Old Trafford side. 

OL are reticent to make a further improved offer and are looking at other potential players to strengthen their offensive line, including Angers’ Nicolas Pepe, Leon Bailey of Genk and Ludogorets attacker Jonathan Cafu.

The French side are hopeful of a swift resolution to this impasse, and if it reaches Sunday, the move could be killed off.
