PSV winger Memphis Depay, who will join Manchester United in the summer, said it was “impossible” to say no to the Old Trafford club.

The 21-year-old, who starred for Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands during the 2014 World Cup, helping them to the semi-finals, was PSV’s key man as they lifted their first Eredivisie title in seven years, and will now move to Old Trafford in the summer – subject to a medical.

“Working with Van Gaal again is a big bonus,” he said to SEG Football. “For me Manchester United is an absolute dream club so I didn’t need any convincing about the quality of the guys already there.

“I’m looking forward to playing alongside a few of my Dutch team-mates but also all the other players as well. You can’t deny the interest of a club like Manchester United.”
