Memphis Depay proud to be a Manchester United player

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay is proud to have completed his move to Manchester United from PSV.

The 21-year-old was unexpectedly unveiled yesterday by the club ahead of schedule as many expected it to be on 1 July when he can be formally registered as a Man United player.

United’s announcement was met with a fanfare from all United fans who were delighted to see Depay holding up his new shirt and the Dutch winger took to Twitter to send his own message to fans.

There is already a real buzz growing about Depay and what he is going to bring to United next season in terms of adding a direct goalscoring threat from the wings once again.

His direct, aggressive style of play is a defender’s nightmare, the sort which would have woken Gary Neville up during the night in cold sweats back in the day. It’s so tough to defend against a confident winger running against you at pace and that’s certainly one of Depay’s best assets.

We shouldn’t get too excited in terms of our expectations for Depay next season but you get the feeling he won’t allow himself a year to settle down and will want immediate results, so hopefully that mindset can drive performances straight away at United.
