22-year-old’s future at Manchester United reportedly in doubt


Memphis Depay’s future at Manchester United has become cloudy with the arrival of new manager Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Mail.

The report suggests that since Depay had a forgettable first season with the Old Trafford outfit his future is one of the most vulnerable at United under Mourinho.

Mourinho will certainly want to shape the team in his image and with reports suggesting that United are looking to add to their wing options as well as the emergence of Anthony Martial on the left wing, Depay finds himself much lower in the pecking order.

Depay was a standout player for PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie, the Dutch football top division, scoring 22 goals his last season with the club, which was good enough to earn him top scorer in the league.

After his breakout season, he eventually made the move to Old Trafford last summer with high expectations and the iconic number 7 jersey as well, but Depay just managed 2 goals in the league this past season.

Now former manager Louis van Gaal seemed to have lost all patience with his fellow Dutchman when he left Depay out of the FA Cup final team altogether.

There is no doubt that Depay has the raw talent of pace and power to be a successful winger in the Premier League so it would be a shame to see a player of his potential be sold, therefore a loan spell to a smaller club may build some confidence.
