- The last-minute salary demands of the Barça striker delay the total agreement, which already exists between clubs
- Marko Arnautovic (Bologna) and Arkadiusz Milik (Olympique Marseille) emerge in plan B of the ‘vecchia signora’
Everything was ready for the signing of Memphis Depay by Juventus to be announced, insufficient, incidentally, for FC Barcelona to sign up Jules Koundé in LaLiga, but in the last few hours, there has been a step back to close the deal between the player and the ‘Vecchia signora’ that was almost done. According to Sky Sport Italia, a last-minute salary demand from the Dutch striker (28 years old) has even led Juventus to consider alternatives to reinforce the attack. So much so that Marko Arnautovic (Bologna) and Arkadiusz Milik(Olympique Marseille), who was already a target of Juve two years ago.
Sebastien Ledure, a lawyer from Memphis, is in Italy trying to recover the agreement that he already had outlined with the Turin club.
As for Barça, everything has been discussed with the directors of the Piedmont entity so that Memphis arrives at the Allianz Stadium with the letter of freedom in exchange for Juve forgiving the five million variables that were agreed upon in the transfer of Miralem Pjanic to Catalan club in 2020 for 60 fixed ‘kilos’.
