Memphis Depay (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈmɛmfɪs dəˈpɑi]; born 13 February 1994), commonly known simply as Memphis, is a Dutch professional footballer and music artist who plays as a forward and captains French club Lyon and plays for the Netherlands national team. He is known for his pace, ability to cut inside, dribbling, distance shooting and ability to play the ball off the ground. Depay began his professional career with PSV Eindhoven, where, under the influence of manager Phillip Cocu, he became an integral part of the team, scoring 50 goals in 124 games across all competitions. During the 2014–15 season, he was the Eredivisie's top scorer with 22 goals in 30 games, and helped the team win the Eredivisie title for the first time since 2008. He also won the Dutch Footballer of the Year for his performances during the season. His performances also led him to be named the "Best Young Player" in the world in 2015 by France Football. Depay joined English side Manchester United in June 2015 for a reported fee of £25 million. After a disappointing spell there, he joined Lyon in January 2017. A product of the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) institution, Depay has represented the national team at every professional level from early developmental stages under the tutelage of iconic Dutch coaches and players alike. He was part of the Netherlands Under-17 team which won the 2011 European Championship. He made his senior debut in 2013, and the following year was part of their squad that came third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup where he made his breakthrough performances on the international stage. More recently, he was a member of the national setup for the 2018 World Cup qualification campaign.
