Speaking to the Manchester United website, Depay, who will link up with fellow Dutchmen Robin van Persie and Daley Blind along with coach Louis van Gaal, called the move a “dream come true.”

Depay said, “This is a dream come true for me; to play for the biggest club in the world and also to have the chance to work with someone who I believe is the best manager in the world, Louis van Gaal. I have great belief in my ability and I work hard to strive to achieve my dreams.

Louis van Gaal added, “I know Memphis well from our time working together in the Netherlands national team. He is a young versatile player who has the ability to play in a number of different positions.

“It will take time for Memphis to get used to the rhythm of the Premier League, but I have no doubt that he has the potential to become a great footballer for this club and he is at the right club to continue the good work he has done so far.”
