Barcelona closing in on Memphis Depay free switch
Barcelona have made some excellent early deals with the signings of Eric Garcia and Sergio Agüero, but the potential inclusion of Lyon star Memphis Depay is starting to drag on a bit.
Going to the EM is an interesting situation as he is a key player for Holland and doesn’t want to be distracted by transfer talks, but an injury could leave him out of a club next year so you’d think he’d have his future as soon as possible to regulate.
Fabrizio Romano has hinted that the anticipated move to Nou Camp to bond with Ronald Koeman is still awaited, but it sounds like there is still some work to be done to get it across the line:
Barcelona are still confident about the Memphis Depay deal after offering them a three-year deal. The club and agents are both “optimistic” – but a full agreement has yet to be reached, and details also have to be determined. ??? @mattemoretto #FCB

It will be interesting to see if he can make a transfer to a big club this time after he flopped at Old Trafford, but if he plays in a front three with Aguero and Messi then some very good players are left in the rain .
Ansu Fati will try to play in every game so he would probably be the first choice if the starters were canceled, but that would also leave Griezmann, Dembele and Trincao out of the picture.

It depends on this being sorted first, but it won’t be a surprise if one or two of this trio move on as a result.
