Memphis Depay says Manchester United are the "biggest club in the world" after completing his move to the Old Trafford side today.

The Dutch international, 21, moves from PSV Eindhoven for a reported £25m on a four-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

The forward top scored in the Eredivisie with 22 goals as PSV won the title last season.

"This is a dream come true for me; to play for the biggest club in the world and also to have the chance to work with someone who I believe is the best manager in the world, Louis van Gaal," Depay told Manchester United's official website. "I have great belief in my ability and I work hard to strive to achieve my dreams.

"I have been at PSV Eindhoven since I was 12 years old and I would like to thank them for everything. It was a great moment when we won the league and I was so happy to be part of that. This is now a new chapter in my life and one that I am looking forward to."

 

United manager Louis van Gaal, who gave Depay his debut for the Holland national team, added:

"I know Memphis well from our time working together in the Netherlands national team. He is a young versatile player who has the ability to play in a number of different positions.

"It will take time for Memphis to get used to the rhythm of the Premier League but I have no doubt that he has the potential to become a great footballer for this club and he is at the right club to continue the good work he has done so far."
