Club Brugge v Manchester United - UEFA Champions League: Qualifying Round Play Off Second LegManchester United travel to Eindhoven on Tuesday to face PSV in the Champions League group stages, and it will be the first time Memphis Depay has returned to the club he left earlier this summer.

Speaking to Omroep Brabant, Aad de Mos has warned Memphis that he will be “devoured” by PSV right back Santiago Arias.

De Mos said, “Depay is not going to get one bit of joy out of his return to Holland,” De Mos told Omroep Brabrant.

“Santiago Arias, the Colombian international defender who knows him inside out, is going to devour┬áhim raw.

“Honestly, I am 100 per cent sure that Arias will wipe him out.”

The 68-year-old then went on to say that PSV will target Manchester United’s centre back duo of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind.

He added,”Smalling is regarded as a great defender, but he isn’t the best on the ball,”

“PSV have worked it out, they are going to let Smalling have the ball all the time. They know he is limited in his ideas.”

“And if Daley Blind thinks he can come and enjoy a bit of freedom, or dominate the game again, then he will soon realise all the PSV players are going to be after him. They will not leave him alone.”
