What shirt number will Memphis Depay wear?

Memphis Depay has today been pictured in a Manchester United shirt for the very first time following his move from Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven.

The 21-year-old spoke to MUTV following his formal unveiling as a Man United player and expressed his delight at joining, ‘the biggest club in the world.’

Now that he has been unveiled, fans are asking an important question: what number will Depay wear at United next season?

Depay wore the No.7 jersey at his previous club PSV yet the legendary number is unavailable at United after the arrival of Angel Di Maria last summer. The winger was also seen wearing the No.11 shirt for Holland in their 4-3 defeat to the USA but that is another number which is already taken by Adnan Januzaj.

Before receiving the number No.7 shirt at PSV, Depay wore No.22 and that shirt is vacant at United. He also sported the No.21 jersey during his successful World Cup campaign under Louis van Gaal last year.

There are plenty of numbers available but on paper it is No.22 which looks most likely given his history with the shirt but who knows? Maybe Depay will surprise us all and take the vacant No.9 shirt.

What shirt number do you think Memphis Depay should take next season?
