Marco van Basten hails this soon-to-be-United star

Published Add your comment

Given his long and illustrious career you’d assume that Marco van Basten knows a thing or two about football. Well, if that’s the case then Manchester United fans will like what he’s had to say about Old Trafford new boy Memphis Depay. The Dutch legend described his young compatriot as a special talent, and said that he was a good and clever player. With Depay in the bag Louis van Gaal will now be looking to other transfer targets, but the most important deal of the summer could yet turn out to be the one he’s already finalised. Meanwhile in team news Marco Rojo has offered an insight into what life is like under Van Gaal, though he said the 63-year-old was distant and cold. We’re not sure if there’s been some issues with his translation, but it does seem like a fairly odd thing to say about a manager as strict as Van Gaal is.
