Memphis Depay to face former club.

Depay, brought to Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal in 2015 from boyhood club PSV in a £27.9m deal, had a frustrating 19 months at United – registering seven goals and six assists in 53 appearances.

Jose Mourinho’s arrival ensured less minutes for Depay with the 24-year-old appearing just four times in the Premier League before making a January switch to Ligue 1 side Lyon for £21.7m.

United’s all-time leading scorer Wayne Rooney, speaking last week, revealed Depay went against his words of advice while in Manchester – turning up to a reserve game in his Rolls Royce, wearing a cowboy hat and red leather jacket following a poor performance against Stoke.
