Memphis Depay’s arrival at Old Trafford was seen as a step towards securing the future of Manchester United, but sadly that was never meant to be.
After failing to impress Jose Mourinho due to consistent lacklustre performances, the young midfielder was asked to pursue his career elsewhere, and Lyon became his new home.
The 22 year old seems to be adjusting rather quickly at his new club, though, and that was evident from his contribution to Lyon’s 4-0 victory over Nancy after coming on from the bench just before half time.
The hour mark in the game saw Memphis score his first goal at the club, as the Dutch national revived his goal-scoring form by converting a Maxime Gonalons assist into a neat strike with his strong right foot that ventured home and settled the game for Lyon.
