The interest of the FC Barcelona in incoporarte to Memphis Depay to his staff has already a while being of public knowledge. The polivalencia that offers the player, the one who can play like forward, like extreme or like "10", in addition to that has the blessing of Ronald Koeman, given the knowledge that has the Dutch technician of the capacities of the player thanks to the step of both by the national selection of the Low Countries, position it like an option of great interest to improve the payroll culé.

However, Rudi García, current strategist of the Olympique of Lyon and therefore, of the same Depay, does not seem to be very thrilled by the possible goodbye of the exjugador of the Manchester United, with destination to the Barcelona discipline. In fact, the same has done some statements, ensuring that it wants to have Memphis for the second half of the season.

The same took place in an interview that the míster conceded to Teléfoot, being these his complete words: "If have ambitions, still will be with us in the second half of the season. Memphis Is a player of world-wide class and are much stronger with him in the team", recognised the strategist Frenchman.

Depay, in effect, is the main offensive weapon with which explains García in the tactical control of the Olympique of Lyon, since in the current season of Tie it 1 of France, the Dutch has participated in 16 meetings, in which it has annotated eight goals and has assisted in four opportunities. Memphis Has a big influence in the game of attack of "The Lions", since he only has participated in the 38 % of the goals of the team, according to the portal Transfermarkt.

García contradicts to the directive on Depay

Rudi García and the directive of the Olympique of Lyon, headed by Jean-Michel Aulas, seem to have opposite visions on what do apropos the future of Memphis Depay. While the technician bets by his continuity and wishes that the Dutch remain in the club, the president of the team seems to be more interested in selling to the footballer.

This has to, largely, to that the contractual bond that Depay has with the Lyon finalises in June of the 2021, by what could leave free in summer if no renews him his agreement. Aulas, then, would prefer to go out of the forward in January to obtain some economic profit of his farewell, reason by which even, would have recessed his price to some five million euros, doing it extremely affordable to the needs of the Barcelona.
