Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has dropped winger Memphis Depay from the squad for the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Depay, who joined United from PSV Eindhoven last May, has had a disappointing year and his omission from the squad brought his debut season to premature end.

Depay, however, was brought on as a late substitute in the side’s recent win over Bournemouth in the final game of the Premier League and also played against Norwich City before that, the Guardian reported.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who scored 22 goals for PSV in 2014-2015, has not scored for United since late February against Midtjylland and his most recent goal in a domestic match came in November against Watford.

Meanwhile, defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who played for the full 90 minutes against Bournemouth, has also been omitted for the clash against Crystal Palace.
