Memphis Depay to join Manchester United

Depay-MUFCMemphis Depay and PSV Eindhoven  have reached an agreement with Manchester United earlier today to allow the 21-year old player to join the Red Devils in June, subject to a medical test, once the transfer window opens up again. The agreed amount is stated to be around €30M.

Quoted during an interview:

Working with Van Gaal again is a big bonus,” Depay said to SEG Football. For me Manchester United is an absolute dream club so I didn’t need any convincing about the quality of the guys already there.

I’m looking forward to playing alongside a few of my Dutch team-mates but also all the other players as well. You can’t deny the interest of a club like Manchester United.

Hopefully this new signing will help strengthen United’s attack while we all wait on De Gea’s decision to extend or not his contract, and of course the much awaited signing of top class defensive players who are eluding United so far.
