WATCH: Footballer Memphis Depay releases rap song to celebrate Instagram achievement

An undeniably cool guy.

Things didn't really work out for Memphis Depay at Manchester United.

There were moments of brilliance, like a last-minute winner against Watford, or his absolute masterclass against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League, but these moments were all too rare.

He was sold to Lyon for £22 million, and he hasn't looked back since.

He's been tearing it up the French league, and has looked amazing every time he lines out for the Dutch national team as well.

And among all of these achievements, he has also managed to rack up an impressive 5 million Instagram followers.

To celebrate this achievement, the winger posted a rap freestyle online, and it's actually not too bad.

Joining names such as John Barnes, Andy Cole and Asamoah Gyan on the list of footballers with rap skills, Memphis posted the video to his Twitter page.

Have a listen below:

Smoking a cigar and dressed to the nines, the footballer doesn't really humiliate himself, which is all that can be expected really.

Manchester United have a buy-back clause in his contract, and if he keeps playing the way he's playing, and releasing bangers like this, they'll be left with no choice but to get him back on board...
