Depay: Man United were unhappy with me playing PSV's last games

A deal for the 21-year-old was confirmed with two Eredivisie games remaining and the Dutchman admits his desire to finish as the division’s top scorer did not please his new club


Memphis Depay has revealed Manchester United were unhappy that he played in PSV’s final two matches of the season.

The 21-year-old became United’s first signing of the summer window after the two clubs confirmed a deal worth around €27.5 million at the start of May.

PSV had already secured the Eredivisie title by then but Depay’s insistence on finishing as the division’s highest scorer – a feat he achieved with 22 goals – did not please United.

“I really wanted to play. For the coach, it was not a big issue. But PSV and Manchester United weren’t happy with that,” Depay told De Telegraaf.

“They both wanted me not to play because of a risk of getting injured. I wanted to win that last game and finish top scorer as well as break the total points record with PSV. So I absolutely wanted to play.”
