Memphis Depay does not look to be letting his lack of playing time at Manchester United get him down.

The Netherlands international has found his first-team opportunities at Manchester United severely restricted since Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford as the club’s new manager in the summer.

Indeed, Depay is yet to make a Premier League start for the Red Devils this season after arriving at Old Trafford in the summer of 2015 from PSV Eindhoven to much fanfare.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Depay with a transfer away from Manchester United as the January window draws ever nearer.

However, Depay looked pleased to be taking his mind off football as he enjoyed a Christmas lunch with his loved ones, and his girlfriend Lori Harvey.

Depay posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Merry Christmas ! 🎄🎁⭕️”

Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season before the Dutchman was sacked and replaced by Mourinho in May.
