FC Barcelona are reportedly trying to get rid of Memphis Depay in winter

Memphis Depay should be sorted out at FC Barcelona in winter. This is reported by the Spanish sports newspaper Sports. Accordingly, the Dutchman is said to have even been promised a free transfer if an interested party is found.

Barça hopes that Depay will advertise with the Netherlands at the World Cup in Qatar in the next few weeks. Already in the summer, the offensive player and the club ended up separating, but with the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Chelsea, Depay saw new prospects for the Catalans.

Behind Robert Lewandowski, Depay is at most the second choice under coach Xavi this season. In the past few weeks, the 28-year-old has been absent due to thigh problems.

Depay was trained in PSV youth and joined Manchester United in 2015 for €34m. However, he did not convince there and a year and a half later he left for Lyon for less than half (16 million euros). Depay thrived in France – and Barça snapped up in the summer of 2021 as the Dutchman was available on a free transfer.

Depay only makes three competitive appearances for Barcelona this season. He was allowed to play twice in the league (1 goal), and he also played a quarter of an hour in the Champions League.
