Man Utd ‘confident’ of landing flying winger

Louis van Gaal is looking to mould the squad in his image this summer, and that could start with the signing of his fellow countryman, Memphis Depay. The 21-year old is playing wonderful football for PSV at the moment, helping them to an Eredivisie crown.

According to The Guardian, Manchester United are confident of landing Depay’s signature this summer, and its down to the good relationship that the starlet had with Louis van Gaal at an international level.

Depay would give Manchester United that much-needed pace and creativity they’ve been lacking. In a 4-3-3 formation you need your wingers to chip in with goals, and the Dutchman has scored over twenty for PSV this season. If he could even get half that for United, whilst chipping in with a few assists then he would certainly be worth signing.

The fee being mentioned is somewhere in the region of £20million. In this instance you are paying for the pure talent due to his age, but I firmly believe he is a player who could come in and make an instant impact.

Would Depay be a good signing? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
