Manchester United forward Memphis Depay is facing quite the dilemma

Memphis Depay was facing quite the predicament on Wednesday night as the Manchester United midfielder settled into his new surroundings.

The Netherlands international flew out with Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils squad to China earlier this week for their pre-season campaign in Asia.

Memphis has it all to prove to the new United manager after an underwhelming debut campaign in the Premier League for the 20-time English champions.

The 22-year-old managed to score just two goals in 29 Premier League games after Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal signed Memphis in a £25m deal from Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven last summer.

And perhaps the Dutch winger was looking to impress the United manager with his work ethic as he contemplated a midnight run on Wednesday with China’s bright lights keeping him awake.

Memphis posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote:

“Midnight run or try to get some sleep? #jetlag #MUTOUR 🕒🏃🏽😴”

The Netherlands star scored 22 times in 30 appearances for PSV in their title-winning campaign in Eredivisie in 2015, earning a move to United.

The Red Devils finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term, leading to Van Gaal’s dismissal.
