One of the most exciting aspects of Memphis Depay‘s game is how prolific he is in front of goal.
With 22 goals this season, he is the Eredivisie’s top scorer despite the fact he operates as a winger and he showcased his excellent touch in PSV’s training session today.
Depay chipped the ball delicately over the goalkeeper and into the top corner. It might only be training but it still takes a great finish to score one of those.

Pick that one out.
There’s a lot that can be improved with United this season and having more of a direct goal threat from the wingers is certainly an area where Depay can help.
Too many times this season there has been a reliance on crossing the ball aimlessly into the box but with somebody like Depay, he can charge directly at a defence and take on a chance himself.
That will give United an added edge in attack and hopefully he can find the final product as well like he did so often in the Eredivisie.
