Out of all of Manchester United’s summer signings so far, it is arguably Memphis Depay who the most is expected of after the young Dutch talent was billed as the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ not so long ago.
In truth, if the former PSV Eindhoven winger enjoys even half the success Ronaldo did at Old Trafford, Red Devils fans will be in for a treat.
Arriving in the Premier League for a whopping £31 million this summer, there will be a certain level of expectation in regards to Depay’s performances but considering his self assured attitude, the Dutchman doesn’t lack in confidence and is far more likely to succeed at Old Trafford than failing.
One more facet to his arrival in England is the fact United fans have just bid goodbye to Angel Di Maria who was whether you like it or not, a flop in the Premier League.
With the expensive Argentine becoming a substitute in the latter part of 2014/15, Depay and United fans will hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate.
With the Dutchman having impressed on pre-season duty, expect him to be immediately thrust into the action against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow lunchtime.
With that in mind, we’ve devised five reasons why Depay will tear his London opposition apart tomorrow in the Premier League opener.
