Marcus Rashford takes to social media in the wake of Memphis Depay's transfer to Lyon...

Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to pay tribute to Memphis Depay after the Dutchman’s transfer from Manchester United to Lyon was confirmed on Friday.

The attacker secured a move to the Ligue 1 side after the relentless speculation about his future at Old Trafford.

Memphis failed to make much of an impact at Manchester United following his transfer to the club in the summer of 2015 as he sealed a move under Louis van Gaal.

Indeed, the Dutchman did not make a single Premier League start for the Red Devils under new boss Jose Mourinho this season.

And after his permanent transfer to Lyon was confirmed on Friday, Rashford took to social media to wish his former team-mate all the best.

Rashford posted the picture above of the duo on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “A new start for @memphisdepay I wish you all the best bro 👊🏾”
