New Manchester United signing Memphis Depay enjoys Barcelona victory

by Ben Topliss

Memphis Depay had to work hard to make an impact against Barcelona on Saturday but it is clear that the Dutchman is going to be a very good player.

A good outlet for Manchester United on the counter, Memphis showcased a range of skills and managed to get himself out of tricky situations with some nice touches.

Expectations for the player have gone through the roof after he fired PSV Eindhoven to the Eredivisie title last term but it appears he has the confidence to make himself a success at Old Trafford.

Memphis joined United to regularly play against teams such as Barcelona in the Champions League and he would have enjoyed the run out at the Levi’s stadium.

However, the 21-year-old was perhaps a little subdued in the no.10 role, which may give Louis van Gaal something to think about ahead of the new campaign.

Memphis has made his name as a goalscoring winger and he may be more effective there for United. If anyone knows how to get the best out of him, it is van Gaal.
