Kevin Strootman congratulates Memphis Depay following Manchester United move

by Ben Topliss

AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman has congratulated Memphis Depay after the youngster secured a move to Manchester United.

After months of speculation, PSV Eindhoven and Man United finally reached an agreement over the transfer of Depay on Thursday.

Strootman was also heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford but he suffered a serious injury earlier this season which put the rumours to bed.

The Dutchman wished his former PSV teammate the best of luck and insisted that Depay “deserves” his success.

If Strootman manages to sort out his knee, he could well be joining Depay at United one day.

However, it would be a major risk on United’s end as the 25-year-old’s injury record makes for worrying reading.

Unfortunately for Strootman, he may never get to be reunited with Louis van Gaal, who has often spoke of how highly he rates him. As for Depay, United fans have every right to get excited about signing a player who is considered to be one of the brightest young talents in Europe.
