depay faUnited confirmed the €25 million deal last week to bring the 21-year-old attacker to the Premier League, subject to a medical, with Depay set to link up with fellow Dutchmen Robin van Persie and Daley Blind.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Blind, who texted Depay to congratulate him, has admitted the PSV star is the talk of the club at the moment.

Blind said, “Everybody is talking about it. His transfer to United is a major topic,”

“I’m not only sensing this at the club, but also in the whole City. I’m a Dutchman, so people are asking me about Depay. He’ll learn immediatly how big this club is. The stadium, atmosphere, supporters… everything they say about United is true.”

Blind added that he believes Depay can be a huge success at Old Trafford, if he is given the time to develop, “I’m sure that he will be a success in our team,”

“He has to focus on his qualities. Dribbling, showing his skills and shooting. And he simply must enjoy being here. Off course I will help him. If he needs me, I’ll be there.

“But he has to become better and faster here. Maybe he will not be the threat he is now in the Eredivisie right away in the Premier League. And after a few dribbles, the defenders will adapt to that.

“But he is skillful enough to improve his handling. He already showed at the World Cup that he can play on a higher level.”
