Transfer: Memphis Depay makes U-turn on leaving Barcelona


Memphis Depay, a forward for Barcelona, has changed his mind about leaving the team this summer.

Depay had ruled out any chance of leaving Barcelona in June.

A year after joining Barcelona, Depay is reportedly pushing to leave, according to the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo.

The former Manchester United star has acknowledged that his time at Camp Nou is up in light of the club’s aggressive hiring this summer.

After his contract with Lyon expired last summer, Depay moved to the Catalan club as a free agent. He went on to score 13 goals in 38 appearances for the Blaugrana this past season. 

However, Barcelona has added five players, and two of them present Depay with more competition for a spot in Xavi’s starting XI.

Robert Lewandowski is expected to be the centrepiece of Barca after his £42million arrival from Bayern Munich, while winger Raphinha has also joined the club from Leeds United, in a deal worth up to £55m.

Speculation on Depay’s future has heightened after he was forced to relinquish the number nine shirt at Barcelona, in favour of Lewandowski.

Depay is linked with Tottenham, Juventus, Newcastle, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain as Barcelona are determined to let some players out of the door so they can register their new additions amid their well-documented financial issues.
