Dutch fans think Manchester United is right move for Memphis Depay

by Sam Peoples

A survey of Dutch football fans has found that 44% think Memphis Depay should join Manchester United in the summer.

Depay has been the subject of transfer speculation this week after he favourited a tweet which contained a report linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

SoccerNews subsequently asked their readers which club he should move to next and almost half said it should be Man United.

Liverpool were the next closest club with 24%, as reported by Sport Witness.

Louis van Gaal and Depay have a close relationship having worked together at the 2014 World Cup with the Netherlands which could give them the edge when it comes to signing the 21-year-old but they will face competition for his signature as Depay has enjoyed a fine season in the Eredivisie.

United have employed a 4-2-3-1 formation in recent weeks which has finally utilised wingers but van Gaal chose to play narrower at the start of the season. This often led to stunted play from United so it is no surprise that van Gaal is targeting an exciting player such as Depay.
