The days of Memphis Depay are counted in the Olympic lyon. And more, after the message that the Dutch striker has sent to the followers of the ‘lions’. A message that has sounded like goodbye.
Depay’s contractual relationship with Lyon ends in June 2021, but his departure could take place during winter market which opens this Friday, December 4.
And the FC Barcelona It is the best place to take over your services if it manages to solve the financial limitations that prevented the operation from closing in the summer.
Depay is an express request of the Blaugrana coach, Ronald Koeman, who has insisted on the need to reinforce the attack line in the face of the decisive phase of the season, especially after the injury suffered by Ansu Fati, who will have him four months apart of the playing fields.
The possibility of the Lyon forward landing at the Camp Nou has prompted countless comments and analysis. The last one has come from the mouth of an ex-Madridista, Clarence Seedorf, which, curiously, has invited Depay to sign for Barça.
“I think Memphis Depay is one of the best talents in Europe right now. He had a serious injury, but he is a player who has to be in a great club sooner or later “, the former Dutch international begins in an exclusive interview with ‘Stats Perform’.
Seedorf endorsed his recommendation based on the excellent performance that the current Barça coach managed to elicit from the forward during his time on the bench for the Netherlands team: “He and Koeman have worked very well together. Koeman has done a great job with the national team and especially with players like Depay, giving them the confidence to come out and show their talent.. I have no doubt that any great club that signs him will be delighted with his talent. “
Depay has revived his career at Olympique Lyon after a bad experience at Manchester City. With the ‘lions’ He has scored 59 goals in 147 games.
