0 depay titeheeDepay is set to complete his €30 million deal from PSV Eindhoven to Manchester United when the transfer window opens on July 1st after completing a medical with the Premier League club last month.

Daley Blind, who made a similar move last summer when he swapped Ajax for Old Trafford has told Manchester United’s official website that Depay will be a game changing signing for the club.

Blind said, “He is a player who can change games. He has a great free kick, a great dribble, a great shot.

“He’s young, talented and always wants to work hard. He always wants to better himself on the training pitch, that’s how I know him.

“I think he is quiet, but if he has something to say he will, if you know what I mean. Yes, he is very confident, but he is a good guy.”

Blind will line-up for his new teammate for the first time since the deal was announced when Netherlands face United States in a friendly on Friday.
