Man United were seen off with relative ease in the Manchester derby this afternoon, as Pep Guardiola’s men dominated from start to finish.
It once again demonstrated the gulf in class between the two sides, and further highlighted the need for United to make some new signings in the next window.
Indeed, one player we at the Transfer Tavern think would be a superb addition is former flop midfielder Memphis Depay, who has seriously found his feet in France during a spell with Lyon.
19 goals last season for the £40.5m-rated winger really enhanced his reputation further, and although a move back to his former club might not be ideal, he might well fancy the chance of proving himself at Old Trafford now he is back in form.
Held back by Louis Van Gaal somewhat in his previous spell, the 24-year-old is a talented individual, and someone who can indeed improve further.
The Dutchman is a different player to that we saw previously in the Premier League, and if he can bring his fearless attitude, goals, and assists to the English game with United, then the Red Devils should have quite the player on their hands.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
