Memphis Depay came very close to a transfer to FC Barcelona on the last day of the summer transfer window. Ousmane Dembélé was to commit to Manchester United and free up a place in the Catalan club’s salary grid for the Lyonnais. But the Frenchman finally decided to stay and win at Nou Camp this season, which destroyed the dreams of the Batavian. Well, not exactly…

Indeed, Depay will be free from any contractual commitment next summer and can discuss with the clubs of its choice from January. For the former PSV, this transfer is ultimately only part postponed. His recent words only demonstrate it. “We will be in January soon. We will have to wait and see how things go. Not that I am going for sure, but there is a good chance that there will soon be interested clubs “, thundered the virtuoso of OL to the media AD.

“I am almost free”

“I’m 26 and almost free so you can expect clubs to be interested in me, right?”, again hit the old Mancunien. Words certainly directed towards his former coach in the Dutch national team and now in place at Barça, Ronald Koeman.
