New Manchester United star Bastian Schweinsteiger has hailed fellow signing Memphis Depay, claiming that he's an 'unbelievable talent', reports the Daily Mail.

Depay, who much like Schweinsteiger moved to Old Trafford in this transfer window, is recognised as one of the leading young players in world football, so will no doubt be hoping to make a major impact in his debut season on English soil.

And the experiences Schweinsteiger has certainly been impressed with him in his early days with the club.

The duo of course, along with fellow recruits Matteo Darmian and Morgan Schneiderlin, are starring for the Red Devils in their pre-season tour of the US, with all four players having made their debuts for the club in a 1-0 victory over Club America on Friday. 

Depay, who featured in the first-half, certainly enjoyed a strong debut for the club, and Schweinsteiger is excited to play alongside him over the coming years.

Depay is a talent 

The German international claimed: "Memphis is an unbelievable talent and he has so much quality and I am sure we will have a lot of fun with him on the pitch."

Depay and Schweinsteiger, then, may well be handed the opportunity to play alongside each other on Wednesday, as Louis van Gaal's side prepare to take on the San Jose Earthquakes. 

Perfect for United

From Ryan Giggs to Cristiano Ronaldo, United have traditionally possessed exciting quick forwards, and Memphis Depay most certainly fits into that category. 

Of course, Louis van Gaal now has a big decision to make over exactly where he's going to play Depay this season. In the player's debut for the Red Devils, despite playmaker Juan Mata being on the field, the Dutchman starred behind Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney, who occupied the lone striker role. 

Perhaps, then, the Dutch boss will look to utilise his young talent in a central role, rather than handing him a place out wide. One thing's for sure, no matter where Depay operates, he has the ability and potential to cause major problems to numerous defences in the Premier League throughout the course of the 2015/16 season. 

Manchester United have a major talent on their hands, and there's no reason why Depay won't be able to explode sooner rather than later.

United fans: Which position should Depay play in this season? Have your say below!
