This one will surely not sit too well with Manchester United fans…
Last night, Memphis Depay finally introduced himself to the Old Trafford faithful in explosive fashion. Trailing one nil to Belgian side Club Brugge, the former PSV man took the game by the scruff of the neck and single handedly dragged United to victory.
Depay scored two stunning individual goals before then providing a pin point cross for Marouane Fellaini to nod home. The game finished 3-1 and the footballing world was left drooling at Depay’s phenomenal display.
For United, it finally looks like they may have a talent comparable to a young Cristiano Ronaldo. With the evidently endless potential that the young Dutchman possesses, it would not be inconceivable for Depay to go on and achieve the sort of heights that Ronaldo accomplished during his time at United.
The only problem is that when someone this good starts strutting their stuff at Old Trafford, it’s not long before a certain Spanish outfit come calling. When Cristiano set the world alight at Old Trafford, it was evident that he was one of the world’s best. For Real Madrid fans, the best only belong in one location.
Since Ronaldo’s departure, United have had several outstanding talents kit out in their infamous red shirt. However, an argument could be made that only one has really stood out as a simply phenomenal star.
Last season, it was generally accepted that United’s top four finish was down to the continuously miraculous performances of Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea. Accordingly, Real Madrid have come in for the United stopper and for months now it has looked like a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’, De Gea will leave.
It seems the trend developing at Old Trafford is that for a player to be successful, he should be very good, but not too good for fear of ‘Los Blancos’ swooping (see Wayne Rooney for example).
After Depay’s jaw dropping performance last night, it seems Real Madrid fans have already gotten a bit giddy and according to a vast array of tweets, numerous supporters already think Depay’s destiny has been written and the Bernabue inevitably awaits.
WARNING: United fans may not like some of these Tweets…
Memphis will join Real Madrid when he’s 24-25. Favorite it

Kind of annoying, knowing that if Memphis really does become a hit at United, he will be playing for Real Madrid. Just a piss take.

If Memphis Depay stays in the right track then he’ll definitely end up in Real Madrid 4 seasons from now. Doesn’t need a Psychic.
