New, comments

The Dutch winger has signed an initial four-year deal.

Ooh look, it's Memphis Depay in a Manchester United shirt!

Yep, the 21-year-old winger has today officially completed his move to United, signing an initial four-year deal with an option for a fifth year. He's unsurprisingly said some nice things about the club, describing it as "a dream come true ... to play for the biggest club in the world and work with the best manager."

Not to be out-done on the platitudes, Louis van Gaal responded by saying Depay "has the potential to become a great footballer. He's at the right club to continue the good work he's done so far."

As you can tell, it was an interesting and insightful unveiling as ever, but hey, at least we've got our man. And we did learn the answer to the question that has kept us in collective suspense over recent weeks: yes, he will wear 'Memphis' on the back of the shirt.
