£25 million star initiates talks with Manchester United, player set to sort out future


Not long ago, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern had exceptionally smug looks on their faces as the club landed the highly-rated Memphis Depay for £25m ahead of arch rivals.

Well, it is how quickly things can change. You only have to see the series of shrugging shoulders from the Red Devils faithful in tonight following reports his future is unclear to get a sense of just how they feel.

Undoubtedly a player of enormous potential, the Dutch forward has struggled to string together any sort of consistency while at Old Trafford.

His attitude was questioned and he was criticised for his flashy lifestyle earlier in the season and the Sun now claims he will hold crunch talks with manager Louis van Gaal.

The 22-year old has only been able to muster seven goals since his move from PSV and lost his place in the starting lineup at the turn of the year.

Only two of his efforts have come in the Premier League and his stock has fallen in stark contrast to the hype surrounding him this time last year.

Indicative of the Louis van Gaal era as a whole, the Dutch international impressed under him at the 2014 World Cup but has struggled to replicate it while in Manchester.

Does Depay really have a future at Old Trafford? Let us know below!
