At present in the Football Transfer Tavern, it’s currently Liverpool 5 Manchester United 1 in regards to new arrivals this summer.
The Red Devils’ arch rivals have already brought in James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino while Louis van Gaal has only made the solitary signing of Memphis Depay so far this summer.
However, our resident United fans are reminding everybody that in this case, quality over quantity should be taken into account with Depay being rightly recognised as one of the most exciting young talents to emerge from Europe in years.
Having already experienced his first World Cup, the 21-year-old is arriving in English football with quite a reputation already despite his slender age.
Orchestrating a first Eredivisie title triumph for PSV Eindhoven since the 2007/08 season last term, Depay got his hands on the second trophy of his career after winning the KNVB Cup back in 2011/12 and he’ll hope this positive trend continues at Old Trafford.
While every transfer represents something of a gamble, the consensus here in the tavern is that United have signed a star in Depay and that’s why today, United fans have listed five reasons why their new Dutch arrival will excel in his time spent in Manchester.
