Memphis Depay joined the outcasts of Manchester United after Juan Sebastian Veron, Kleberson and Bebe. Memphis was a huge prospect who featured for Louis Van Gaal’s Netherlands at the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 and managed a goal against Australia.

Things did not work out in England with Van Gaal’s sacking came Jose Mourinho who did not see the winger as an integral part of his long-term stay at the club.

Memphis has sailed on and has followed the steps of Mario Balotelli into France’s Ligue One and he is having the time of his life. Playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Nabil Fekir with the trust of Coach Bruno Genesio has settled him into French football.

At Manchester United, he bagged just two goals in 33 appearances whiles at PSV, he netted 39 times in 90 games. With just seven appearances after his transfer to Lyonnais in January, he has bagged three goals from seven appearances. If he continues on this path, then in just half a season, he would be able to register 10 goals or more for his club and cement his status as a starter ahead of other exceptional talents at the club.

Potential of Memphis Depay is huge

With Paris Saint Germain and AS Monaco performing outstandingly in the league and in Europe, Olympique Lyonnais has been reduced to chasers of European football year in and year out and the quest for a domestic championship seems far from reach.

On the goal scoring charts, players like Edinson Cavani have been expertly supported by Lucas Moura in the scoring of goals whiles Lacazette has been the only man standing in terms of scoring goals for the club.

There are leagues that fit some players while others would just exist in it. Radamel Falcao and Memphis Depay are testament to this.
