    Depay, of course, has already played for 20-time English champions, having arrived at Old Trafford back in 2015, when the current coach of the Netherlands national team, Louis van Gaal, was sitting there in a dugout.

Van Gaal replaced José Mourinho in 2016, and the Portuguese tactician named Depay a starter only once, in the League Cup, beating fourth-tier side Northampton Town before sending him to Olympique Lyon next summer.
