Memphis Depay has revealed that Laurent Blanc tried to sign him while in charge of French champions Paris Saint-Germain.The Lyon forward was speaking to reporters following the Netherlands’ 3-1 victory over Northern Ireland in their Euro 2020 qualification match, with the 25-year-old scoring twice to take his tally to five in the competition.And Depay has claimed that PSG were keen on his services in the past, with Blanc having been in charge at the Parc des Princes between 2013 and 2016.”He (Blanc) wanted to buy me during his time at PSG.”The Dutchman began his professional career at PSV Eindhoven before moving to Manchester United in 2015, and it’s likely that the interest from PSG will have come around that time.Blanc won the league three seasons in a row during his time with the Ligue 1 powerhouse, while he also secured a domestic treble two seasons in a row.
