Although the deal was put in place several weeks ago, the signing of Memphis Depay was only completed yesterday.

The transfer, said to be for a fee of £31 million, saw the 21-year-old Dutch international, put pen-to-paper on a four year deal with an option for a further year.

Depay arrives at Old Trafford having finished as the top scorer in the Dutch top-flight last season scoring 22 goals with PSV Eindhoven winning the title for the first time since 2008.

Talking about his move to Manchester United, Depay remarked to the media in attendance,

‘This is a dream come true for me, a new chapter in my life and one that I am looking forward to.

‘I have been at PSV Eindhoven since I was 12 years old and I would like to thank them for everything.

‘It was a great moment when we won the league and I was so happy to be part of that.’

Welcoming his latest signing to Manchester United, Louis van Gaal added,

‘I know Memphis well from our time working together in the Netherlands national team.

‘He is a young versatile player who has the ability to play in a number of different positions.

‘It will take time for Memphis to get used to the rhythm of the Premier League.

‘But I have no doubt that he has the potential to become a great footballer for this club and he is at the right club to continue the good work he has done so far.’

Here at Vital Manchester United we`re certainly looking forward to how Memphis performs in the Premier League and we`d like to take this opportunity to officially welcome him to our fine club.
