Man United Plan Move for ‘Dutch Cristiano Ronaldo’ as Louis Van Gaal Looks to Freshen Up Old Trafford Attack

Old Trafford side chase PSV Eindhoven winger.

Check in to Netherlands vs Chile

Man United are reportedly readying a move for Dutch international winger Memphis Depay according to the Metro.

The 20 year old PSV Eindhoven wide-man scored the winner as Holland overcame Australia 3-2, his first national team goal, and is apparently a player Louis van Gaal would like to follow him to Old Trafford this summer.

Depay also provided an assist in the Dutch win over Australia and is rightly considered one of the hottest prospects in European football, dubbed by some as the ‘Dutch Cristiano Ronaldo’.

One imagines that the acquisition of solid effective wide attacking options would be high up on van Gaal’s wish-list with the likes of Nani, Ashley Young and Luis Antonio Valencia are no doubt fearful for their futures at Man United after poor displays last term.

Depay has scored 17 goals in 60 appearances for PSV and may well be tempted by a move to Man United and his side’s inability to secure a Champions League berth may lead to the Eindhoven side considering big money offers for the young talent.
