Manchester United on Friday July 10, 2015, unveiled new signing Memphis Depay to club fans and the media at a press conference.
Depay, a £25million signing from PSV Eindhoven, told news men that believes his new club can challenge for the Barclays Premier League title this season.
Meanwhile United’s manager Louis van Gaal has already warned Depay that he will find life in the Premier League tough, despite believing he has signed one of the top players of his age in Europe
But a player tipped by many to be a sensation in England did not appear short of confidence. Asked if United can win the title, Depay said: ‘Oh yes, for sure.
‘We have a lot of quality, we just have to find our way. The team has all the quality to win the title. All the trophies are possible.’
Depay was monitored by United, faced competition from other clubs at the end of last season and the transfer formally went through when the summer trading window opened earlier this month.
He will join his new team-mates on pre-season tour of America on Monday and hopes to hit the ground running.
‘I think I can score goals here, for sure,’ the Dutch international added. ‘I will work on that and I believe in that.
‘I am excited about coming here to do my job and score goals. I am a striker so I have to score goals.’
Van Gaal revealed that he may as well deploy Depay as a center forward rather than on the flanks to replace soon to leave Robin Van Persie.
‘He is one of the few talented players of his age,’ said the United boss. ‘He is one of the greatest of his age. He is full of confidence as you can see.
‘He will notice that it’s not so easy here, that it is a lot harder than in the Dutch league. There is always pressure on the ball. The physical resistance is high. I have told him that so we will see how he thinks.’
