Attacker Flies In For Medical Ahead Of €34m Manchester United Move
Dutch attacker Memphis Depay has flown in to the UK to undergo his medical and complete the paperwork ahead of his €34m move to Manchester United
As the opening of the summer transfer window approaches, managers are working hard identifying targets and lining-up potential deals so we’ll bring you all the news and gossip. Today, Memphis Depay has flown in to complete his move to Manchester United….
Dutch attacker Memphis Depay has flown in to the UK to undergo his medical and complete the paperwork ahead of his €34m move to Manchester United, according to the BBC.
After months of speculation surrounding his future, Depay finally settled on a switch to Old Trafford and United confirmed earlier this month that they had agreed a deal with PSV to sign the youngster subject to a medical.
It appears United are in a hurry to get things finalised as soon as possible as leading BBC journalist David Ornstein claimed on Twitter yesterday that Depay was due to fly-in to Manchester on Sunday night and will undergo his medical at Carrington on Monday.
If everything goes according to plan, the 21-year-old will then complete the paperwork on a deal that Ornstein suggests will cost United €34m (£24.7m) up front with a further €9m (£6.5m) in bonuses, meaning the total deal could end up costing €43m (£31.2m).

Depay played his final game for PSV Eindhoven on Sunday afternoon and grabbed another assist during a 3-2 victory over Den Haag to ensure the club won the Eredivisie title by a whopping 17 points over second-placed Ajax.
It finished off whats been a sensational season for the young attacker that’s seen him score 28 goals and provide 8 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions, so he’s certainly going to bring an added goal threat to the United attack next season.

United have pulled off a major coup in landing Depay as he was one of the most sought-after young players in European football but it’s going to be interesting to see how he adapts to life in the Premier League.
Forwards who have made the move to Holland to England have enjoyed mixed levels of success in the past as for every Dennis Bergkamp, Ruud van Nistelrooy or Luis Suarez there’s been a Alfonso Alves or Luuk de Jong, so United fans will be hoping Depay doesn’t add his name to the list of promising attackers who’ve failed to adjust to life in England.
