‘Swipe sign for Memphis: Barça wants to scale down contribution to US promotion’

Memphis Depay is in a tricky package at FC Barcelona. The Dutch international has had a debut season with varying degrees of success, but does not seem necessary in the coming season.

The usually well-informed RAC1 journalist Gerard Romero comes up with salient news. FC Barcelona is said to have asked for a less prominent role for Memphis for its advertising and promotion in the United States. The Catalans tour the country later this month, practicing against Inter Miami, rival Real Madrid, Juventus and the New York Red Bulls.
AS takes on Romeros scoop and knows that the prospects for the coming season are indeed not good. Barcelona is about to capture Raphinha and offer Ousmane Dembélé a new contract and is still hunting Robert Lewandowski. Memphis should pay extra money: his contract continues for one year and Barça is betting at 25 million euros, according to reports.
