With his standout performance in a Manchester United shirt coming in the first leg against Club Brugge in the Red Devils’ Champions League qualifier, United fans know there is a lot more to come from Memphis Depay.
Given the fact United went on to land the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and most recently Anthony Martial this summer, some Red Devils fans almost forgot that the club got a deal done to sign Depay even as last season was reaching it’s final conclusion.
An incredibly talented footballer, Depay already has an Eredivisie title and World Cup appearances under his belt despite just being 21-years-old and all going well, he’ll be giving Manchester United his best years over the course of the next few seasons.
Taking the legendary number seven shirt at Old Trafford of course, Depay will have to succeed where Angel Di Maria failed while showing the kind of flair and trickery that made Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo such icons at the club.
