Manchester United have asked about the availability of PSV Eindhoven forward Memphis Depay, according to the newly crowned Dutch champions.

The 21-year-old is the leading scorer in the Eredivisie, with his 20 goals helping PSV win the title for the first time in seven years.

"We have had a telephone call from them about him," PSV's technical director Marcel Brands said on Dutch television.

"But no talks have been held. Several top clubs have expressed interest."

Netherlands international Depay scored PSV's second goal as they overcame Heerenveen 4-1 on Saturday to win their first Eredivisie title since 2008.

Brands said Depay would cost more than the 20 million euros (£14.4m), which is roughly the figure Tottenham Hotspur reportedly bid for the playerexternal-link last year. Spurs were unsuccessful in that attempt.

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

PSV coach Phillip Cocu told the media after Saturday's title triumph that he expected both Depay and midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to leave.

Depay played at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as the Netherlands finished third before Louis van Gaal quit as head coach to take over at Manchester United.
