Manchester United’s potential 4-3-3 with Memphis Depay and Angel di Maria

by Ben Topliss

The impending arrival of Memphis Depay to Manchester United may well be seen as a statement of intent from Louis van Gaal.

Man United have traditionally played through the wings over the years but this term has seen van Gaal employ a much more conservative style of play.

Memphis will bring pace and power to United’s left hand side and the team may be more willing to play down the flanks as a result.

Juan Mata has enjoyed a fine season on the opposite side but van Gaal may be hoping that Angel di Maria regains his form before making himself a mainstay on the right.

Di Maria is going through a tough time of late but he is too good a player not to make things work at Old Trafford.

At his very best, the Argentine can be frightening and the combination of him and Memphis should be a thrilling one to watch if it clicks.

Of course, the likes of Mata and Ashley Young will have their own say on the matter but, on paper, Memphis and a rejuvenated Di Maria should be able to make United a force once again.
