Memphis Depay has flown into Manchester to have his medical ahead of his £25m move to Manchester United, according to reports.

United agreed a deal with PSV Eindhoven for the 21-year-old earlier this month. The transfer could eventually set United back £30m based on add-ons.

Depay said while on a promotional trip to London last week that he aims to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo and become the best player in the world.

“I believe I can be one of the best players in the world and I have to dream and believe to achieve that,” he said.

Depay, who scored 22 goals in the Eredivisie this season for PSV, will be reunited with Louis van Gaal, who gave him his international debut in October 2013.

"I have a good relationship with him," Depay said of Van Gaal. "In the World Cup he trained very hard and that is what I like.

"I learned a lot from him. He is very strict and that is what I like. If I do something good he is going to tell you, and that's important, but also if you can do it better he is going to tell you that.

'I believe he can make me better. I am young and I want to be one of the best players in the world."
