Is this £57m-rated United star on the way out of Old Trafford?

With the news today that Manchester United have secured the signing of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven, Louis Van Gaal has already started his summer revamp of his current squad.

The signing of Depay, naturally a winger, could spell the end of Angel Di Maria‘s United nightmare after just one season.

It is no secret that Di Maria was linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain in last summer’s transfer window and that could be a likely destination for him next season if the French giants are willing to pay the huge transfer fee needed.

The Argentine ace has featured 19 times in the Premier League for Van Gaal, scoring just three, but he has racked up an impressive ten assists in his debut campaign in England’s top flight.

In stark contrast Depay has netted 21 Eredivise goals and notched four assists in 28 appearances.

The fee for the 21-year-old is reported to be around £25-30 million and if United were to move Di Maria on they will make twice that amount as he is valued at £57.2 million by transfermarkt.co.uk.

Van Gaal is clearly expecting more from his forwards and this signing is a statement that he is eager to get his business underway early ahead of his first full summer in charge.

Could the signing of Memphis Depay mean Angel Di Maria is heading for the exit door?
