Manchester United have stolen a march on their rivals by signing Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven.
Depay became one of the most sought-after players in Europe following an excellent season with the Dutch champions.
Paris St Germain and Liverpool were said to be interested in the Holland forward but PSV and United confirmed on Thursday that the 21-year-old had agreed to move to Old Trafford.
United have paid £25m for Depay’s signature.
The Old Trafford outfit tweeted: “#mufc has reached an agreement with PSV Eindhoven & Memphis Depay for the player’s transfer, subject to a medical.
“Pending the successful completion of the medical, the deal will go through once the transfer window opens in June.”
The Dutch club also confirmed a deal had been struck for the player. They said in a statement on their website: “PSV and Manchester United have reached an agreement for the transfer of Memphis to the English club.”
