7 Vines that prove Memphis Depay is Manchester United's most skilful player


It's been something of a debut season to forget for Manchester United’s big money signing Memphis Depay, often hampered by fitness and lacking more confidence than Carlos Tevez at a speed dating night.

Little by little, however, there have been glimpses that this £25m Dutch winger may one day be worthy of that ionic number 7 shirt, as elucidated in United’s 5-1 Europa League victory over Danish side Midtjylland (not a typo) last night, where he ran the defence ragged and even managed to get himself a goal to boot.

Without doubt his finest moment of the night came with one outrageous piece of skill: nutmegging an opponent in a way even his silkiest teammate Juan Mata would probably have struggled to replicate.

So, kicking off with that piece of genius, here are seven times Depay really did have the skills to pay the bills. Which we imagine are a lot.

Elastic legs

He wasn't done there...

Forget Europa, this lad can do it in the Champions League

Who scissor kicks the ball past David De Gea? He does.

And...a few more tricks from last night

Okay, so this isn't strictly a Vine but you can't argue with the audacious skills on show
