FC Barcelona is negotiating a departure with Memphis Depay. The club is asking twenty million euros for the Dutch striker, who thinks that is too eager. Memphis wants to leave transfer-free.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Memphis lawyers are in discussions with Barcelona about the conditions for a transfer. The striker wants to leave for free, Barcelona wants a transfer fee and bet on twenty million euros. The fact that Memphis leaves Catalonia this summer seems almost certain, it is only questionable under what conditions.
“Memphis only accepts a departure from Barcelona if it finds the right club for its future,” writes Romano. Memphis came across as transfer-free from Olympique Lyon last summer. He still has a one-season contract with Barcelona. In the rumor circuit, Juventus and Manchester United are mentioned as interested clubs.
