Memphis Depay set to earn £100,000 a week at Manchester United

Memphis Depay is set to earn around £100,000 a week at Manchester United say De Telegraaf in Holland.

Those figures represent a substantial pay rise for the 21-year-old as he will join from PSV Eindhoven. It will be an increase of around 300% for him.

For a player who is widely considered to be one of the best young players in European football, the wages are all relative and representative of his big step up to Man United from PSV.

An interesting point which De Telegraaf raises are claims that Ruud van Nistelrooy earned £12,000 a week in his pomp at Man United, a figure which does seem low but money within the Premier League has significantly increased since Ruud was around.

Depay had an excellent World Cup with Holland and took the smart step of staying at PSV for another year, a decision which has been vindicated given how strong a campaign he had in the Eredivisie.

He’ll now come to United having helped PSV win the title after his goalscoring exploits steered them throughout the season and Louis van Gaal will be looking forward to linking up with him again.
