Manchester United fans will be hoping Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay form quite the attacking partnership next season, as the Red Devils go about making an impact on both the domestic and European scene.

And, with United enjoying a successful tour of the US, the duo have looked extremely sharp, with both players having found the back of the net in North America. 

And if this morning's video posted by Manchester United's official Twitter account gives us anything to go by, it appears that they're starting to build up a relationship on the training ground, too.

In fact, Depay, who looks set for stardom after his big move from PSV earlier on in the transfer window, met a Wayne Rooney cross in style, as he spectacularly volleyed home. 

Depay, of course, has taken up the position just behind Rooney in pre-season so far, with the duo of Juan Mata and Ashley Young often starring out on the wing, so the young Dutchman will no doubt be hoping to get the nod when the Red Devils play host to Tottenham in the Premier League a week on Saturday. 

PSG clash 

First thing's first, though, and the United players will be hoping to end the pre-season tour on a high as they take on French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the early hours of tomorrow morning. 

After a morale boosting win over European champions Barcelona in their last outing, Louis van Gaal's side will look to continue to gain momentum when they take on Laurent Blanc's fine side.


Exciting duo

But Manchester United fans really should be excited by the prospect of Depay and Rooney starring together next term. As they continue to form a partnership, there's no reason why they won't be able to produce the goods week in, week out. 

Ultimately, Rooney appears to be excited by the challenge of leading the line in attack for United, while Depay will no doubt be hoping to prove his credentials on the biggest stage. 

With Depay's pace and skill and Rooney's class and intelligence, the duo will be handful for their rivals. At 21, United's new Dutch star is one of the most exciting talents in world football, and he will only learn from playing alongside the Manchester United captain.
