Manchester United attacker Memphis Depay may have got himself into a spot of bother after apparently removing a parking ticket placed on his car by a traffic warden, then throwing it onto the pavement.
Depay moved to Old Trafford from PSV at the very start of the summer transfer window but, while he may have got to grips with things on the pitch for his new club, the Dutchman would appear not to understand the rules of the road.
The Sun on Sunday carry exclusive pictures of Depay’s £120,000 Mercedes parked in a loading bay in Manchester city centre, which did not evade the attention of a traffic warden, who stuck a ticket on the windscreen.

But, when Depay returned to his vehicle, he simply removed the ticket, throwing it to the floor, before posing for photos with Manchester United supporters. Oh Memphis, you rebel.
“Depay had parked his sports car in a loading bay and didn’t seem to care,” an onlooker told The Sun on Sunday.
“He left it for around 45 minutes and when he came back a traffic warden had stuck a ticket on the windscreen.
“You could see the annoyance on his face when he saw the ticket and he ripped it off and then threw it on the ground.”
Closer inspection of the ticket showed that the fine was £70 - hardly much of a stretch for the recent Manchester United acquisition given his handsome salary of almost £90,000-per-week.
Depay, meanwhile, was back in action for Manchester United as they faced Southampton at St Mary’s on Sunday.
