Memphis Depay’s stunning free-kick against Heracles goes down a storm with Manchester United

by Richard Laverty

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 Dutch attacker will join Louis van Gaal and United in the summer after agreeing a multi-million pound deal last week, and he didn’t take long to give his new fans a glimpse of his talent.

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…

The odd fan took a more pessimistic view of things…

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.
