Memphis Depay: Manchester United is perhaps the world’s greatest club

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay is making all the right noises ahead of his move to Manchester United this summer.

The 21-year-old has spoken highly of his close relationship with Louis van Gaal and made it clear how happy he is to have joined his ‘dream’ club.

Now, he will have endeared himself more to the United faithful with his latest comments about United.

“Manchester United is a world class club, one of the biggest clubs, perhaps the greatest club,” Memphis said after PSV’s 2-0 win over Heracles at the weekend.

Memphis hasn’t joined yet but the way he is presenting himself is getting United fans excited before he has been unveiled.

On a personal level, the signing of Depay is almost more exciting than Di Maria for the fact that United fans will get to watch a player grow into a potential superstar. There aren’t many more satisfying things as a fan than watching a youngster become a world class player at United.

Over the course of history, United have rarely signed a ready made world beater. Instead they have brought in some of the world’s most talented youngsters and given them the platform to excel, which is precisely what Louis van Gaal has done for Depay.

Next year was always going to be exciting for United. Van Gaal would have had a year to settle, he will have another summer to build his squad and with Champions League coming back to Old Trafford, United are on the ascendency again.
