[Memphis Depay is aiming to go on an English course when he arrives at Manchester United] I want to continue to improve my English. I understand everything, I can talk, but I’m going to do a course. The fact that I can speak it now I owe to the fact I play at PSV with many foreigners. With all those guys, English is the official language

[Memphis Depay refused to compare his wonder goal to that of former England captain David Beckham’s famous halfway-line effort for Manchester United against Wimbledon in 1996] I’m not David Beckham. I don’t compare myself to such a legend. I think it’s great for me to score a goal like this. I tried the same thing a few years ago when I played for PSV and I hit the bar. This time, I got lucky. I realised in the first half that the keeper was off his line all the time. We put on pressure, I looked at him, and as soon as we won the ball I knew where he was, so all I had to do was turn and just do it - don’t think, just shoot. I didn’t even see the ball go in, I just saw the stadium going crazy. I think I’ve scored the best goal of my life. Aside from that, I’m very happy because the team has taken an important victory

[Former Manchester United forward Memphis Depay recently revealed that he is hoping to step up the European ladder in the near future] Lyon is a big club, but not one of the five best in Europe. I want to go to a club like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich. I want to go to a city that suits me and a club that suits me, to a team that really wants to play football

[Depay will play for Lyon in cup final and Champions League but long-term future is uncertain] He will play in the finals that await us. Unhappily, the international transfer window will last until October 13, so we’ve got until then to pick our players. There will be departures and we’re going to have to make choices because we’ve already got more than 30 players. We’ll have to let some go, loan others, and we’re going to have to find compromises to have a good team. Coming out of such a crisis, you have to aim for the top places. I’m not saying the title, but why not?
