The past couple of seasons have been less than impressive for the English Premier League giants Manchester United, who are still in the midst of a rebuilding project at Old Trafford, bringing in a whole host of new players over the past couple of seasons. Manchester United have been in need of a world-class talent for a whole now and it looks like they might just have found him.
There was a lot of excitement surrounding Manchester United, when it was announced that they were buying the exciting young talent Memphis Depay, who many have tipped to have a long and successful career in the game. The first two league games this season saw Manchester United win 1-0 in both, with Memphis not exactly setting the world alight with his performances.
However, Champions League football returned to Old Trafford, with their qualifying match against the Belgian side Club Brugge, and Memphis Depay brought his A game, putting in a fantastic performance. Memphis took his first goal very well indeed, before then smashing in an impressive second, and setting up the third, as Manchester United beat Club Brugge 3-1.
The performance was so impressive, that some over-excited fans have already been comparing Memphis Depay to the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. At the age of just 21, Memphis definitely has a very promising future and if he can continue to produce performances like this, he is going to become one of the best players in the world.

Do you think Memphis Depay will become the next big soccer superstar?
