Louis Van Gaal To Drop Memphis Depay For Everton Clash

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is set to drop Netherlands international Memphis Depay for the Red Devils’ clash against Everton this Saturday, as per the Sun [via the Daily Star].

Depay, 21, has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League following his move from PSV Eindhoven in the summer, with much talks currently ongoing about the attacker’s attitude.

Although the Dutch star has been impressive for United in the Champions League, scoring three goals but he has managed just one in the league.

He was top scorer for PSV last term, bagging 22 goals in the Eredivise to help the Dutch outfit clinch the title.

But unfortunately for United, Depay has been able to replicate the form he showed in the Dutch League for Louis van Gaal’s side, and the former Bayern Munich tactician is now set to drop him from the United starting XI that will face the Toffees on Saturday afternoon, according to the report.

Now it remains to be seen who van Gaal will bring in to replace Depay, who was woeful during United’s 3-0 defeat to Arsenal prior to the international break.

Depay was substituted in that game as Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin comfortably dealt with the Dutchman throughout his stay in the game.

The powerful attacker was also disappointing for the Netherlands in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and the Oranje failed to qualify for the European Championship in France next year.
