Manchester United flop Memphis Depay has told Virgil van Dijk he should have signed for Manchester United rather than Liverpool two years ago. In a rap video posted on Instagram the Lyon winger praised his compatriot with a flattering verse in which he revealed his dream of Van Dijk playing for United instead of Liverpool.
“It is on,”
“Captain of the nation, What move will he make?
“And I didn’t forget, The days in the rain,
“He is a leader, woah,
“He is the boss on the field,
“He comes in with corners,
“Header, With great force, woah
“He doesn’t take anything from anyone, just money,
“Van Dijk, he is everyone’s Dutch hero,
“Van Dijk, watch out, he strikes
“You know, we don’t lie,
“Dutchman, he is fly,
“Van Dijk, man. I wish you signed man, not for Liverpool, but for Man United.”
Depay’s international teammate became the then most expensive defender in football when he left Southampton to Anfield in the 2018 January transfer window, for a massive £75m transfer fee. Despite the huge expectations on his shoulders the 28-year-old has even proven himself to be a bargain for his incredible impact under Jurgen Klopp. United eventually broke the record fee for a defender when they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester last summer for £80m, but former winger Depay wishes it was Van Dijk who was playing at Old Trafford.
