The Netherlands international states that he snubbed a move to Allianz Arena in favour of a move to Manchester United
While speaking to reporters, the young Dutchman stated that before choosing to sign for Louis van Gaal’s side, he had multiple offers from the biggest teams in Europe including the reigning German Bundesliga champions but eventually chose to move to Old Trafford after being convinced by the club’s manager that the move would be the right one for him.

“I can’t say who the best coach in the world is,” Depay replied when asked if he was tempted to work with Bayern boss Pep Guardiola.
“There are definitely a lot of good and well-known managers and Pep Guardiola is certainly one of them.
