Ronaldo De Boer believes Manchester United will be signing a player who’s talent is comparable to Cristiano Ronaldo if they hold off interest from Liverpool and PSG and sign Memphis Depay.
United’s interest in Depay was confirmed by his club yesterday, and Dutch legend De Boer believes signing for United could be the best option for the youngster who has scored 20 goals in the Dutch Eredivisie this season.
PSV have resigned to the fact that they will be losing the 21 year old this summer and are believed to be looking for a fee in the £25m region, a sum United will be willing to pay.
Speaking to Talksport, De Boer said:
“He is one of the biggest talents in Europe. He has skill compared to a young Cristiano Ronaldo. He Is very lively, technically unbelievable, very skilful, very fast, he has a great goalscoring record, he can shoot from every distance – he has everything.”
Pressed on where he should look to make his destination this summer, De Boer added:
“I don’t want to say which club is more suitable for him, but if he goes to United he knows there is a Dutch coach there who knows him from the World Cup. That is an advantage.”
