Daley Blind has described his future team-mate at Manchester United, Memphis Depay, as a "game changer".

Blind has played alongside Depay at international level for Holland. The forward joins United from PSV for £25m on 1 July.

"He is a player who can change games," Blind told Manchester United's website. "He has a great free-kick, a great dribble, a great shot. He’s young, talented and always wants to work hard. He always wants to better himself on the training pitch, that’s how I know him. I think he is quiet, but if he has something to say he will, if you know what I mean! Yes, he is very confident, but he is a good guy."

 

Depay scored 22 goals in the Eredivisie last season as PSV won the title. The 21-year-old passed his medical at United last month.

A statement on the United website read: "Memphis Depay has completed his medical at Manchester United.

"The Club will now work towards finalising his registration when the international transfer window opens in June."
