The young midfielder recently sealed a move to United and is planning to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo.
I would say he shouldn’t set the bar so high, but then there is nothing wrong in aiming for the stars, you might just hit the moon.
LVG has already compared Depay, who will join the Red Devils in the 2015-16 campaign after sealing a £22.3 million move from PSV, with Messi as a player who scores from the wings.
Depay has now welcomed comparisons to former united star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I heard people compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo,” he told Goal at the launch of the Under Armour Speedform boot.
“It’s great to hear other people say that but I’m still 21 and I hope one day I can reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I’m the same player as him in style and he’s a big hero for me. He scored so many goals and I have to fight to be the same.”
