Desperate Barcelona Could Sign Dutch Star, Memphis Depay For Just £4.5m In January

By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Memphis Depay could join Barcelona for as little as £4.5m this January, as Lyon grow concerned at the prospect of losing their star man for free next summer. 

New Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman was desperate to reunite with the Dutchman on his arrival to the Nou Camp this summer, but the Catalans – who are in deep financial turmoil with £720m of debt – struggled to raise the funds to complete the transfer.

The cost of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the failure to sell players such as Ousmane Dembele, prevented Depay’s move to the Catalans from going through.

The winger is in the final year of his contract at Lyon, meaning Barca would be able to sign him on a free transfer next summer.
