Manchester United have not been as successful at signing players as they would like in the transfer window so far, but they were able to recruit winger Memphis Depay.
The 21-year-old winger was sold to Man United for £25m, and the Red Devils are hoping he can provide a scoring threat after excelling at PSV Eindhoven.
Depay marks the first official signing for the Red Devils, but they are on the verge of reaching a deal for Torino defender Matteo Darmian, who is set to undergo a physical exam.
Despite the Dutch star’s previous success, Man United boss Louis van Gaal was blunt when asked how he expects Depay to adjust to life in the Premier League.
“I think he’s one of the few high-talented boys of his age in this world. And you can hear he is full of confidence but he will notice it is not so easy in the Premier League,” van Gaal said, according to The Metro.
The Dutch international scored 22 goals for PSV Eindhoven in the 2014-15 season, but van Gaal likely has a lot of truth to his comments, as Depay will have to face powerhouse teams like Chelsea and Arsenal.
The former PSV Eindhoven star will look to fill the void left by departed star Robin van Persie, who is set to sign a deal with Fenerbahce.
