Man Utd want talented Dutch winger to be first summer signing

As we all know, Manchester United had an extremely quiet January transfer window in terms of incomings, but that probably means Louis van Gaal is planning a big splurge again in the summer window, and at the top of that list is a fellow Dutch compatriot.

According to The Sun, Memphis Depay is a top target for the Old Trafford hierarchy, and United are preparing to make him their first summer signing – thought to be in the region of £10million.

The 20-year old has been attracting interest from all over Europe, with United thought to have a big battle on their hands for his signature. However, with Louis van Gaal at the helm, that gives United that slight edge because Depay has previously worked with him at international level.

He’s a tricky winger with bags of potential, and most importantly – he’s direct. We need players who aren’t afraid to run at defenders and go past people, because thats something we’ve been seriously lacking of late.

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