It has been revealed that Memphis Depay believes that weight gain is the main reason behind his early struggles at Manchester United.
The Dutch international star joined United during summer for a fee of around £25million and big things were expected of the Dutchman by the Red Devils’ faithful.
“Since I joined Manchester United I’ve gained five kilos,” Memphis told Dutch paper De Telegraaf.
“And that’s not fat. Only muscle mass. It’s pretty bizarre. It’s also due to the heavy rhythm in England. I now weigh 85 kilos.
“When I stood on the scales first I thought, ‘OK, do you?’ My body is still developing. Now I’m a little heavier. I work a lot on my co-ordination and starting speed.”
