New Manchester United signing Memphis Depay is the hottest young talent in world football according to France Football.
The French bi-weekly magazine recently published a list of the top 50 young players in world football with £49m man Raheem Sterling finishing 3rd and PSG’s Marquinhos in second.
The 21 year old Depay scored 28 goals last season as a youthful PSV side strolled towards the Eredivisie title.
Depay’s new Manchester United teammates Luke Shaw and Adnan Januzaj also made the top 50 whilst Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma finished as high as fourth.

Real Madrid and Barcelona wonderkids Martin Odegaard and Alen Halilovic both made the top 10 of France Football‘s list.
Memphis Depay is expected to become a key player at Old Trafford under compatriot and World Cup coach Louis van Gaal.
The Dutch manager has a very strong history of bringing through some of the best young players in world football. Depay, Shaw and Januzaj will be hopeful that they can become his next stars.
