Manchester United supporters reacted with glee when Memphis Depay smashed home a stunning 30-yard free-kick on his final home performance for PSV.
The strike had hallmarks of free-kicks seen at Old Trafford by Cristiano Ronaldo in years gone by and is the Dutchman’s seventh of the season from a dead ball situation.
With plenty of excitement already surrounding the signing, United fans reacted typically to the goal on Sunday afternoon…
I'm going to be very disappointed if I don't see at least seven angles of the Depay free kick.

DEPAY OH MY WORD

We've finally got someone who will actually score our free kicks #Memphis

Bend it like Memphis.

Some free kick that from, @MemphisDepay

The odd fan took a more pessimistic view of things…
Next season you'll see Memphis Depay step up to a free kick like that and hoof it back to Ben Amos to keep possession

With United’s transfer process well underway ahead of a season which will once again include Champions League football, fans will now await more news on further signings, with rumours suggesting deals for long-term targets Nathaniel Clyne and Mats Hummels may not be far away.
