Memphis Depay admits getting close to RvP amid Man Utd rumours

Memphis Depay admits he's become close to Manchester United striker Robin van Persie during the Dutch World Cup campaign.

The PSV Eindhoven winger has been linked with United and joined RvP on the scoresheet in yesterday's win over Australia.

"At first I did not know where I had to run through, but Robin has been working hard with me in Oranje. I thank Robin, he's very important to me.

"Though everyone is incredibly helpful in Oranje," he said.

Holland No2 Patrick Kluivert enthused: "That goal was typical of Memphis. He has a great shot, can dribble, Memphis actually has the total package like no other."
