Memphis Depay has enjoyed a busy summer holiday but is now ready to fly to Manchester and prepare for his debut season in the Premier League.
The winger became Manchester United’s first big signing this summer when Louis van Gaal swooped in to secure him quickly at the start of the window ahead of Paris St Germain and Liverpool.
He finished last season for PSV as the Eredivisie top scorer with 22 goals and United fans are already excited to see the youngster make his debut for the club.

Ryan Giggs is hoping Depay can emulate David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo at Man United by being a free-kick specialist at the club and fans are keen to have another goalscoring winger in the squad.
There are high expectations on the 21-year-old and and he needs to ensure that he mentally copes with the added pressure of being at United but the early signs indicate he will thrive.
Depay is expected to make his United debut on July 17 in the opening game of the pre-season tour, so it could be less than three weeks before we get to see him in a United shirt for the first time.
