Man United’s Memphis Depay is statistically the best free kick taker in Europe [Graphics]

Winger Memphis Depay scored a fabulous 35 yard free kick stunner in his final PSV Eindhoven home game ahead of his summer move to Manchester United.

The 21 year old Dutchman has scored seven free kicks in the 14/15 season – more than any other player in the top 6 European leagues.

Bundesliga free kick experts Hakan Calhanoglu and Zlatko Junuzovic have each scored five whilst Andrea Pirlo has only managed three.

His free kick stats dwarf the likes of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have managed only three between them in this campaign.

Memphis Depay will likely become the Manchester United set piece taker, with the club having struggled in that department since Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit in 2010.

The talented young star will be vying with Angel Di Maria and Ashley Young for a starting berth in Louis van Gaal’s Man United XI next season.

Playing from a wide position, Depay has racked up 28 goals in all competitions this season and Man United fans have good reason to be excited about his impending arrival.
