New Man United signing warns rivals of his goalscoring prowess

Manchester United star Memphis Depay has issued a warning to rival Premier League clubs after scoring his first goal for the Red Devils, Daily Star reports.

Depay was on target in United’s 3-1 win over San Jose Earthquakes earlier this week, which was his first strike following his £25million move from PSV Eindhoven.

And the Netherlands international has promised fans that they can expect to see much of the same in the upcoming season, which also signals as a warning to the Red Devils’ rivals.

“It’s a great feeling,” he said.

“I’m a striker or attacking midfielder so it’s always nice to score goals and give assists. Today was my first one and, I think, the first of many so I keep working on it.

“Of course, it was a mistake by the defender but Wayne [Rooney] was putting pressure on him so he made the mistake.

“I was reading the situation. I already thought, like gambling, that he was going to lose the ball so I was there and made my first goal.

“I really enjoy it. I’m serious – every day.

“To wake up as a Manchester United player is awesome. I’ve settled in well and the boys are very nice.”

Recently United have been actively trying to sign a striker in the summer transfer market, with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Fernando Llorente both being linked with a move to Old Trafford.

However, earlier reports suggested that head coach Louis van Gaal could instead deploy Depay up front, with the 21-year-old having a keen eye for goal.

Last season, Depay bagged an incredible 28 goals in 40 appearances for the Eredivisie champions, making an additional eight assists.
