Some Manchester United fans think Memphis Depay has aimed a sly dig at the Glazer family in a new song.
Depay is best known for his exploits on the football pitch but also has an interesting sideline as a hip-hop artist.
In his track Big Fish, the Netherlands international namechecks United’s owners with the line: “I be planning to make some statements/I need money like the Glazers.”
It is not entirely clear if this is simply a comment on their financial standing or a criticism – but some United followers have made up their mind.

Manchester United secured a dramatic comeback victory at Southampton on Sunday, largely thanks to Edinson Cavani’s two goals off the bench.

His United reference was shared on Reddit by u/ItchaBoiYid under the heading: “Memphis taking shots at the Glazers in his new song.”
The song has led to reaction aplenty from United fans on Twitter.
Depay arrived at Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2015 for an initial fee of around £25million but failed to establish himself under either Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho.
The forward, who scored seven goals in 53 appearances, left in January 2017 to sign for Lyon, where he has since kick-started his career, scoring 59 goals and providing 47 assists in 150 appearances. The forward almost joined Barcelona during the summer transfer window but the deal fell through late on.
