Memphis Depay is a Dutch footballer who plays as a winger or attacking midfielder for English club Manchester United and Netherlands national team. After performing to world class levels at PSV Eindhoven, MemphisŁ attracted European attention from various high profile football clubs. Scoring 50 goals in just 124 appearances for the Dutch club, Memphis helped his then club to achieve the 2014/15 Eredivise title whilst also being awarded the league's top goalscorer award in the process. Making headlines for all the right reasons, Manchester United approached to capture the future star's signature and after a reported £25 million fee PSV subsequently accepted the offer.
Born in Moordrecht, Netherlands, Memphis played his youth football for local club VV Moordecht before signing with well known Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam. Showing signs of promise, PSV Eindhoven managed to lure the player to the respected club who developed Memphis' talent for five seasons in their youth ranks. Becoming a star in the making through a combination of hard work and natural talent, Memphis broke into the first team making his debut on 21 September 2011 in a 8-0 win against VVSB. Memphis then made a milestone achievement later that season by appearing in his debut Eredivise match as a substitute in a 3-2 win against rivals Feyenoord. Gaining vital first team experience in the 2011/12 season, Memphis quickly became an integral member of the squad in the subsequent three seasons, achieving over 120 appearances and 50 goals in total. Manchester United managed to beat off rival champions league clubs to the signature of one of the most hyped about young players on the planet.
Manchester United showed their intent of making Memphis a star at the club by issuing the player the inaugural number 7 shirt previously worn by Best, Cantona, Beckham, and Ronaldo. United and Memphis have ambitions of the player reaching the same iconic levels of the club's accomplished number 7's.
Memphis has accumulated plenty of appearances with the Netherlands national side and has showed goal scoing form, hoping both increase over the forthcoming seasons
