Nice have made a move for Manchester United outcast Memphis Depay.

The Dutchman has been put up for sale by United – and for a cut-price valuation of £12 million.

With Lucien Favre’s Nice chasing down a historic title triumph, the board is ready to boost his attacking options in January.

Memphis is on their shopping list, with OGCN planning an approach about a straight loan deal for the attacker.

Favre would pair Memphis in attack with Ligue 1 sensation Mario Balotelli, but Nice would need United to cover a large chunk of the player’s wages to get a deal done.
