Juventus reach agreement with Barcelona’s Memphis Depay


Dutch forward Memphis Depay arrived at Barcelona last summer as one of the few players and talents who could propel Barcelona forward without Lionel Messi. Yet his departure, just a year later, seems set to come with little fanfare.

According to Relevo, Memphis and Juventus have agreed a two-year deal that will see the Dutchman earn around €7 million a year. The remaining issue to be resolved is between the clubs. Barcelona are willing to let Memphis leave without significant compensation, but are considering whether they can extract a small fee from Juventus.

Memphis was Barcelona’s joint top scorer last season but finds itself on the outside looking in to recruit Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and the recovery of Ansu Fati.

Barcelona have almost met their minimum target for the rest of the transfer window and have registered their new signings. With Jules Kounde still unregistered, the savings on Memphis’ salary should help with that.
