Depay: Manchester United & Liverpool fans react to Red Devils taking lead in transfer race

The 21-year-old has been impressing for the Dutch side this season, with his 20 goals helping the team to win the Eredivisie. He has netted most of these when cutting in from the left wing on to his favoured right foot, in a manner reminiscent of fellow Netherlands international Arjen Robben.

Having worked under Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal while he was manager of the national team, Ronald de Boer had thought they were favourites for Depay’s signature according to the Daily Express. However, it now seems that United may not have it so easy with the entrance of the Bundesliga champions in to the race.

With current wide men Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben both in their 30s, Pep Guardiola seems to be on the lookout for their eventual successors. The PSV man could be one such player, and will now be challenging the Premier League duo for his signature, believes the Star.
