New Man United signing makes bold claim about his future
Memphis Depay declares his intention to develop into the best player in the world at Manchester United
Memphis Depay has declared his desire to become the best player in the world with Manchester United.
Depay, like many of his Red Devils team-mates, has struggled to produce consistent form for Louis van Gaal’s side in recent weeks as United slumped to back to back Premier League defeats following their Champions League exit.
The Netherlands international has found it difficult to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League and has only managed to score two goals in the top flight so far this term since his transfer from PSV Eindhoven in the summer.
However, the 21-year-old is confident that it will not be long before he rediscovers his best form for United.
Depay told United’s website: “Becoming the best player in the world – that’s the ultimate goal – and I can cope with that.
“Believe me: that pressure will never crack me.
“It’s frustrating. I know I can do a lot better. I just had to settle in and get used to the football in the Premier League, to my new life in England. Of course, you want everything to go smoothly, but sometimes that isn’t always realistic. But failure just isn’t an option.”
Depay will be hoping to feature when United return to Premier League action with a trip to Stoke City on Boxing Day, before Monday night’s crunch clash with Chelsea at Old Trafford.
