Depay: Van Gaal Call Changed My Mind

share on:

Memphis Depay, United’s new acquisition has revealed that it was a call from Van Gaal that made him snub PSG.

Last week, PSV and Manchester United agreed a €27.5 million deal for the 21-year-old midfielder, who will be reunited with LVG after completing his medicals this summer.

The dutch international was ready to move to PSG, but a call from LVG swayed things.

“I was really close to a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, I know Manchester United were always interested but not concrete. In the last moment, they called my manager and of course I spoke with the trainer Louis van Gaal,” said Depay.

“It was a difficult situation, let me say that, but after I spoke with Louis van Gaal I said to myself ‘I want to go to Manchester’.

“I’m really proud and I believe that I can be a big player for Manchester and give the people there everything I have.”
