Memphis Depay sends entire fleet of cars back to Holland

Jose Mourinho is expected to change many things when he arrives at Manchester United but it is fair to assume that he will give each and every player the chance to prove their worth. 

The Special One will be given free reign to rip apart the team built by Louis van Gaal over two seasons, selling the players he does not want and spending huge money buying the ones he does.

A number of stars are believed to be in peril including Spanish duo Juan Mata and Ander Herrera but the one man we are here to talk about is Memphis Depay.

The lightning quick winger with a deadly ability from free-kicks was the talk of Europe after his impressive 2014/15 season for PSV Eindhoven. Seeing him win the Eredivisie and the Golden Boot convinced Van Gaal to spend almost £30m bringing him to Old Trafford and big things were expected.

However, Depay's performances on the pitch have failed to match his big price tag or his even bigger ego. Having arrived with so much swagger, the 22-year-old is now a shell of the confident figure he once was.

Future in doubt

There is some doubt as to whether the Holland international will fit in Mourinho's system, especially with Anthony Martial ahead of him in the pecking order. Depay does not track back nearly enough to fit into one of the Portuguese's classic systems and is rumoured to be unhappy in Manchester anyway.

And now Depay has dropped a significant hint that his future lies elsewhere. With Holland not in Euro 2016, the winger has the summer off and appears to be spending time and money shipping his prized possessions back to his home country.

According to The Mirror, he has just shipped his impressive £350,000 car collection back to the Netherlands. We know Depay earns a ridiculous amount of money (£150,000-a-week) but would he really go to so much trouble just so he can enjoy his motors for a few weeks over the summer?

Take a look at some of the pictures below:

The collection shipped back includes a £100,000 Mercedes G Wagon and a Scorpion Trike worth almost £14,000. There was no sign of his top asset, the £250,000 Rolls Royce Wraith, which has already arrived in Holland.

Aiming to impress

The player himself has recently discussed his disappointing debut campaign in the Premier League but did not suggest an exit was forthcoming. Quite the contrary, he revealed his plans to dust off and impress his new manager in pre-season.

"It's never nice to be criticised, but it is part of the game and I have to deal with it," Memphis told Fox Sports.

"The season did not go as planned and that hurt my confidence a bit. It's now up to me to deal with this situation and get back on track.

"I think every attacker is intuitive. You have to make decisions on when to go for an individual action. The old Memphis, who beat every opponent, will soon be back again.

"I did not play as many games as I hoped and I am obviously disappointed about that. I had different expectations. But I have to deal with that. It's now on to next season. I have to prove my worth during pre-season."
