Memphis Depay sealed a £15 million move to Lyon from United today.

Having arrived Manchester United with a decent reputation as a goal scoring winger dubbed as the next 'Ronaldo', it is fair to say Memphis DePay  'DeFAILED' to live up to that hype.

Despite getting off to a flying start, he shifted his attention to all other luxuries attached to football, leaving out the most important part - hardwork and delivering on the pitch.

He spent his time putting up tattoos in almost all body parts, like the kids who rub dirt on their white play kits in 'OMO' adverts.  He also started dressing like a Nigerian man who has just returned from overseas, wanting to show his village kinsmen and 'Umu-Ada' that he has arrived.

The Dutch winger was signed as one of the hottest prospects in world football,  after being voted best player U21 ahead of the likes of Paulo Dybala and Raheem Sterling in 2015 by Talksport.  He also won the Eredivisie Player of the Year award, golden boot with 22goals, scoring the highest number of free kicks(7) in the 14/15 season, across the top five leagues in Europe.

Memphis Depay was also voted 3rd best young player at the world cup in 2014, behind Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane. All these made the United management hand him the iconic number 7 shirt, which has turned out to be too heavy for him.

Maybe he was a fully pumped tyre deflated by the rigid tactics of 'Oga' Philosophy, Louis Van Gaal.

We wish him the very best on his new adventure with Lyon, alongside our ex fan favourite, Rafael Da Silva.
