A French press report revealed, today, Wednesday, the emergence of new competitors for Barcelona to sign the Dutch striker Memphis Depay, Lyon, next summer.
Depay’s contract with Lyon expires at the end of this season, and he is entitled to sign for any other club this January, knowing that Barcelona was close to joining him last summer, but the deal failed for financial reasons related to Barca.
According to the magazine ” France Football “, the contractual situation of Debye has attracted the attention of senior Italy, specifically Juventus, Inter Milan, and AC Milan, who strongly wish to support their attack.
Depay is a major goal for Barcelona, after the failure to sign Argentine Lautaro Martinez, the Inter Milan striker, as the Catalan club wants to bring a new striker to succeed Uruguayan Luis Suarez, who left for Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has so much confidence in Depay’s potential. He supervised his training in the Netherlands national team, so he is looking forward to training him at Camp Nou.
Although Coman needs to join Depay this month, that will be related to the players leaving Barça and the extent of financial liquidity availability.
