New Manchester United signing Memphis Depay believes he will be one of the “best players in the world” ahead of his move to Old Trafford this summer.
The Dutch international, who impressed at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, has decided to make the switch from PSV Eindhoven to the Premier League giants, as he looks to test himself in the English game.
Depay has some lofty ambitions and feels his attitude will take him a long way with the Red Devils, as they look to challenge the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City next season.
He was quoted by Sky Sports saying: “I believe I can be one of the best players in the world and I have to dream and believe to achieve. It is tattooed on my chest.
“You just have to work every day on your dreams. My dreams started with going to the World Cup and then when I was there I scored two goals – becoming the youngest ever Dutch goalscorer – and I was very happy.
“But when the World Cup was finished, I realised that was not it. I had to take more on to the pitch – there was more to do.
“So after the World Cup, in pre-season, I spoke to my manager and said I have to keep focused. Scoring in the World Cup was good but not the end of it. Now I am on fire.”
United are 5.50 to win the Premier League in the 2015/16 campaign.
