After a sensational campaign with PSV in Netherlands, Manchester United bought this player-maker on 7 May 2015. Depay was given the iconic number 7 shirt, previously worn by club legends. He had a pretty start to his United career but was eventually dropped of the squad due to his poor run of form. Premier League is tough, Players are not allowed too much space here and that was the thing Memphis never thought. No offence but, Dutch league is too easy if compared to Premier League.
As he arrived, fans though that, they have found their new ‘Ronaldo’ who can end their miserable run of form.
In his 24 appearances for the club, he scored just 2 goals in the league and that is nowhere near Ronaldo’s standards I guess. Has the shooting accuracy of 47% and this is the worst stat by any mean. Memphis has the 7th short worst conversion rate in the premier league this season and that is 5.9%. A top scorer last season and a super flop this season. The Dutchman’s failed to settle at Old Trafford and have also failed to prove his price tag of £25million. Depay was supposed to be the saviour for United who could end their poor run of form but instead, he added his own misery and became one the worst signings in this season’s premier league.
