Manchester United signing Memphis Depay is growing a beard on the advice of his team-mate Daley Blind
Memphis Depay appears to be taking style tips from Daley Blind following his Manchester United move.
The Netherlands international made the £25m switch to the 20-time English champions from PSV Eindhoven earlier this summer.
Depay is already pals with Blind after meeting up with the Oranje squad since the winger received his first call-up in 2013.
And the 21-year-old revealed that he is attempting to grow a beard after some friendly style advice from the former Ajax man.
Depay posted on his Instagram page: “Daley told me to get a beard.”
Blind and Depay could line up together for United’s opening game of their pre-season tour against Club America in Seattle.
The United midfielder, who moved to Old Trafford from Ajax last summer, uploaded a snap of the pair facing the media on Thursday.
Blind wrote: “🎥 #MUtour”
Blind scored two goals in 25 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils in his first season in the Premier League.
