Manchester United have finalized the £31 million deal to bring in PSV Eindhoven and Dutch international Memphis Depay.
The sought-after 21-year-old winger performed well at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and followed it up with a spectacular showing in the Dutch Eredivisie. Over the past campaign Depay tallied 22 goals, leading PSV to the league title. Now, he will take his talents to Manchester under former international boss Louis van Gaal.
