Memphis Depay has sent his Dutch team-mate Virgil van Dijk a transfer message in the bizarre form of a rap video. The Manchester United flop admitted he wanted the Liverpool ace to join the Red Devils instead.
Since leaving Old Trafford, Memphis has hit 53 goals in 134 appearances for French outfit Lyon.
And that has seen him linked with a Premier League return in recent transfer windows.
In a rap video Memphis made his message to Van Dijk clear and wishes he would have opted to join United.
Speaking in Dutch, he said: “It is on.
“Captain of the nation, What move will he make? And I didn’t forget, The days in the rain. He is a leader, woah. He is the boss on the field.

“He comes in with corners. Header, With great force, woah. He doesn’t take anything from anyone, just money. Van Dijk, he is everyone’s Dutch hero. Van Dijk, watch out, he strikes.
“You know, we don’t lie, Dutchman, he is fly. Van Dijk, man.
“I wish you signed man, not for Liverpool, but for Man United.”
Van Dijk has been key to Liverpool’s success this season, putting the Reds on the brink of the Premier League title.

The Reds need just six more points if the campaign continues following the suspension of all football in England due to coronavirus.
And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his side can get even better in the future.
“We will not change [mentality], that’s the first thing,” the manager told Sky Sports.
“If we will be successful depends what other clubs are doing as well because they all have a chance to improve things, to do things better. So I have no clue what the future will hold for us. But we will not change, this team is not a finished article, it’s not done.

“We have a lot of space for improvement and we work on that. We have fresh blood coming up internally, we can mix things through. There are a lot of things we can improve obviously, but we can improve it with this team, which is really great.”
Klopp also opened up on his man management style which is so often praised by players and pundits.
“My players aren’t my sons but my sons are now turning 35 and 32, and that’s pretty much exactly the same,” he said.
“There are moments when you are a father, there are moments when you are a friend, there are moments when you have to criticise them. These things are always exactly the same. I always did that with my players as well.
“We can have a really close relationship and the closer relationship you get, the more you have to tell the truth to the boys because they judge you on that. I explained it once and said I really want to be the friend of my players but I cannot be their best friend. That’s how it is.
“A friend has to tell you the truth, a friend has to tell you what you can do better, a friend has to – and will – always tell you what is right and what is wrong. That’s exactly what I do, but never in a manner that they cannot get up next morning.
“It’s always the same reason: I want to help them. I have no other job. My job is to help the boys to be the best player they can be, and there are a few things to do.”
