Manchester United finally confirmed the signing of Memphis Depay on Friday and fans were understandably delighted.
Memphis is considered to be one of the most exciting young talents in world football and his signing is a massive coup for Man United and Louis van Gaal.
Explosive, quick and unpredictable, the young Dutchman loves a drive from distance and is particularly dangerous from free-kicks.
United were crying out for a player like him for large parts of last season so fans were over the moon when he finally signed on the dotted line:
Class! Can't wait to see him next season https://t.co/SgqaynMPPD

Does this Depay contract mean LVG might extend with 2 years ❤

Today, 6 years ago, Cristiano Ronaldo left us to join Real Madrid, and fast forward to 12th June 2015, Memphis Depay signs for us. 🙂

Of course, Memphis will be relentlessly scrutinised now that he has joined a club of United’s stature.
However, supporters must remember that he is far from the finished article and there is still a lot of work to be done until he realises his potential.
Once he has adapted to life in England and the Premier League, there is no doubt whatsoever that Memphis will score goals for fun at United.
