PSV have revealed that Manchester United have made a formal enquiry on the availability of their forward Memphis Depay.

United were being linked with a move for Depay in the winter transfer window due to manager Louis van Gaal having strong connections with the winger, but a move failed to materialise and the Dutchman ended up remaining at PSV.

However, the Red Devils seem to have not given up on their attempts to sign the 21-year-old, with PSV technical director Marcel Brands confirming that United have made an official approach.

"We have had a telephone call from them [Manchester United] about him," Brands said on Dutch television. "But no talks have been held yet. There are several top clubs who have expressed an interest."

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly made a £14.5 million bid for the forward in January, but Brands insists that the interested clubs will have to pay much more than that if they want to land Depay, who is currently the Eredivisie's top goalscorer with 20 goals to his name.

"It will be much higher than the offer from Tottenham Hotspur," Brands added. "He will be very expensive."

PSV manager Phillip Cocu, however, expects Depay to leave this summer along with midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, who has also been impressive this season.

"The chance is really good that they'll both go," said Cocu, according to Sky Sports. "But I do hope we'll be able to keep the rest of the team. A few mutations are not so bad but there must not be too many."

Meanwhile, United reportedly sent their scouts to watch Club Brugge's teenage forward Obbi Oulare during his side's high profile clash against Anderlecht on Sunday.

Scouts from many sides including Manchester United, Everton, Sunderland, Burnley, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen were in Belgium on Sunday to watch the 19-year-old in action during a top of the table clash between Club Brugge and Anderlecht, according to the Daily Mail.

And none of the scouts were disappointed as Oulare scored in the 74th minute to equalise for his side after Timmy Simons' own goal had given Anderlecht an early lead.

Finally Club Brugge emerged victorious and extended their lead at the top of the table to four points after Ruud Vormer grabbed the winner with four points remaining in the clock.

Manchester United scouts, who were reportedly impressed by the striker's performance on Sunday, have reportedly given the green light to van Gaal to pursue the youngster in the summer.
