Man United are BACK! Stunning Memphis Depay deal reminiscent of Fergie days, talkSPORT told

first_imgManchester United have sent out a statement of intent with their signing of Memphis Depay, talkSPORT have been told.United have moved swiftly to fight off interest from Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain to land the PSV Eindhoven starlet in a £25million deal.Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has faced criticism in the past for supposedly failing to move quickly enough to wrap up signings, and Guardian journalist Jamie Jackson claims the Depay deal proves the Premier League giants are back to being a major – and feared – force in the transfer market.Speaking on the Hawksbee and Jacobs show, Jackson said: “This sort of shows really how United are getting back to how they were under [Sir Alex] Ferguson – doing their business quick and early.“Ed Woodward has had a year or so to settle into the transfer business and he has got a manager there now who is decisive. David Moyes maybe wasn’t the most decisive manager.“I think if you are a United fan and United watcher you have to be impressed with this.”last_img read more
