Potential XI: Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain: Schweinsteiger and Depay start

by Ben Topliss

Memphis Depay made his name as a winger at PSV Eindhoven last term but still managed to finish at the league’s top scorer as the Dutch club won the Eredivisie title.

His finishing ability is one of the strongest aspects of his game which, when coupled with his pace, has led many to believe his future lies up top.

Louis van Gaal seems to agree, having played the 21-year-old in the No.10 position during Man United’s pre-season tour of the United States.

In the final game against Paris Saint-Germain this week, he may be tempted to play Memphis as a striker so he can show fans exactly what he can do:

Elsewhere, Bastian Schweinsteiger will be hopeful of making the starting XI after returning to training.He may find himself alongside Michael Carrick, although Morgan Schneiderlin is also in with a shout. In any case, van Gaal will be hoping all of his players come through the game unscathed ahead of the new Premier League season.
