Manchester United are confident of making Dutch international Memphis Depay their first summer signing, according to the Express.

The report, citing The Sun, has revealed that the Red Devils are set to make a £10 million move for the player's signature as they look to bring him to the Premier League. 

The new Ronaldo 

Depay, who starred under United boss Louis van Gaal at this past summer's World Cup, has been dubbed the Dutch Cristiano Ronaldo, and looks set for an extremely bright future in the game. 

The talented youngster, who has struck 16 goals in 22 appearances for PSV this term, was previously linked with a move to Tottenham, however it now appears that Manchester United are in the driving seat to bring him to England's elite division. 

In fact, the same report has suggested that sources close to the player are confident of securing a move to Old Trafford this summer, as the Dutchman looks to continue his progression in the game. 

Another option 

It now remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United make a formal bid for the forward's services in the near future, as Louis van Gaal continues to improve his squad at the Theatre of Dreams. 

There's no doubt about it, Depay, who is a left-winger by trade, would only improve United in the attacking department, despite the club already possessing some of the world's best forward players. 

The Red Devils, of course, already have the likes of Angel di Maria, Juan Mata and Co. operating in the forward areas, while youngster Adnan Januzaj appears to be determined to secure a starring role at the club sooner rather than later. 

However, with United failing to make a serious title challenge this season, it appears that things are set to change for the club in the immediate future as they look to regain their status as one of Europe's big-boys.
