Memphis Depay admits defying Manchester United

Memphis Depay has revealed he defied Manchester United by playing the final two matches of the Dutch league for PSV Eindhoven.

The 21-year-old has agreed a £25million move to United and will officially complete his move to the Premier League when the transfer window opens at the end of the month.

He was advised to sit out the final two games of the Eredivise season to avoid injury but he went against his new club in a bid to finish as top scorer in the Dutch league.
“I really wanted to play and for our coach [Phillip Cocu] it was not a big issue,” Depay told the Dutch daily De Telegraaf on Wednesday.

“But PSV and Manchester United were not pleased. They both suggested that I sit out because of fear over injuries.”
