Memphis Depay ‘one step away’ from leaving Barcelona


Memphis Depay is reportedly just “one step” away from leaving Barcelona and an official announcement could be made as early as Tuesday.

Mundo Deportivo reckon Barca will allow Memphis to leave on a free transfer and head to Juventus on a two-year deal.

Rumors of Memphis and Juventus have surfaced for some time, but Barca were initially thought to want around €20m for the striker.

However, Memphis only has a year left on his contract and Barca also need to move players to register Jules Kounde and make more signings, meaning he could go on a free.

The Dutchman also knows he has little chance of minutes if he continues at Barcelona after the Catalans’ summer of big spending.

Memphis was part of Xavi’s squad on the day of the season opener against Rayo Vallecano but did not make the bench.

Xavi asked for more reinforcements for his side after the 0-0 draw, but Barca will have to withdraw players first if they are to add more new players to the squad.
