- The Dutch player knows that it will be difficult to get minutes but he will only agree to go to a powerful team
The arrival of several forwards to FC Barcelona supposes an overbooking in the attacking line. And one of the players who will lose prominence will be Memphis Depay. The Dutch already know it because they have communicated it to him. Although it was not necessary, because the footballer himself was aware that the arrivals of Raphinha and Lewandowski , together with the recovery of Ansu and the renewal of Dembele , were going to subtract minutes from him.
Memphis knows that if he wants to be a protagonist he will have to leave Barcelona . The Dutch attacker, unlike other cases, does not close the band and is open to listening to proposals. Of course, he has asked that they be from powerful teams.
No rush for a player with a good poster
In the club there is no rush to sell it either. Sportingly speaking, Memphis was the top scorer last season with Barça along with Aubameyang (13 goals each) and they know that he will always be a guaranteed replacement if it is necessary to use him up front. And financially, the Dutchman has already arrived with very tight conditions after being released from OL . Depay adapted to the harsh reality of the club and his salary is far from the highest. Therefore, it is not a sale that disproportionately releases ‘fair play’, although they would make it easier if the case were to come.
So far some clubs have shown interest in Memphis . In England they have even come to say that Tottenham made a first offer for him below the 20 million that Barcelona would have priced the footballer, whose contract ends in 2023. He has also been linked to Juventus , who wanted him last year and that this summer he has lost Dybala and Bernardeschi. Or even with the PSG of his friend Neymar who had him as a rival at Lyon.
