The Dutchman has been in fine form for club and country so far this year and his form hasn’t gone unnoticed.
United fans have recently been calling on Mourinho to re-sign the player he sold in his first year at the club.
Depay was only at Old Trafford for a few months under the Portuguese manager’s reign but was quickly deemed dispensable as he was sold to Lyon in the January transfer window.
Since moving to France the winger has started to fulfil the potential he once showed with the Red Devils and rumours have since started to emerge of a possible return.

Memphis had a buy-back clause installed in his contract when leaving Manchester United and so he could be brought back for relatively cheap.
Jose had said at the time of selling him that the clause was purposefully installed as there was belief he could still have a successful career.
The former Chelsea manager’s desire to sign a winger has been no secret and some supporters believe Depay represents the ideal candidate.
Though United are overstocked in the left-wing department, he is capable of playing on either flank or as a striker if needed.
