Memphis Depay might not officially be a Manchester United player yet but it hasn’t stopped scarf sellers outside Old Trafford from putting his face on some merchandise and selling it outside Old Trafford.
The 21-year-old is indeed closing in on his move to Man United and is in Manchester today to complete his medical according to reports and it won’t be long before Depay’s shirts are being sold everywhere.
One thing which Depay will be knocked back after he joins the club is the sheer size of its fanbase. No disrespect meant to PSV but the the jump up to United from them is going to be a huge step and potentially a steep learning curve.
Every player, even the likes of Juan Mata who joined from Chelsea, have all been taken aback by United’s support and coming in as a player who has already been likened to Cristiano Ronaldo, Depay will get a lot of attention straight away.
It’s going to be very interesting to see how quickly Depay can settle at United but if he is half as confident as he sounds about joining the club, then he won’t have too much of a problem settling in straight away.
