Memphis Depay decided to sign with FC Barcelona until June 2023 in what will be a contract for only two seasons. However, the culés keep an option to renew him unilaterally until 2024
After several weeks of wait in which it went out information of all type, the FC Barcelona announced the Sunday happened the signing of Memphis Depay. The culés did of this form with one of the big bargains of the market of signings, since the Dutch finished agreement with the Olympique of Lyon and signed with the Barcelona to cost zero until June of 2023. An agreement that, on the other hand, surprised by the shortness of the same, since it does not be used to to be normal in the world of the football.
Unless they are incorporations of veteran footballers, is very abnormal that sign inferior agreements to the three or four years. In this case, the Dutch has 27, by what expected that it signed at least until 2023 or 2024. However, as it announced days before it did official his arrival, he same asked to the Barça that offered him only two campaigns, something that the Catalans finished fulfilling.
It says that the attacker asked this by two main reasons. The first is that it does not want to have links with the Barcelona because it is conscious that the future of Ronald Koeman, that is his main valedor, still is in the air. The trainer of Zaandam will follow with security until 2022, but if the Barcelona do not win at all or do not surrender as it expects , is possible that Joan Laporta do without he inside a year.
On the other hand, Memphis could prefer can renegotiate the conditions of his current agreement inside some years in case that it surrender well and triumph like blaugrana. Right now, his wage is very adjusted because of the economic needs of the Barça, but in his next renewal is very likely that the entity was more saneada and can pay him a wage that adjust more to his quality and to his performance.
The Barça could renew him until 2024
However, can that the one of Moordrecht already have agreed an improvement of his current conditions. Oriol Domènech, journalist of 'Onze', program of 'TV3', has ensured that in the agreement of Depay there is a clause with which the Barcelona can renew him of unilateral form until 2024 if it executes it before 31 December 2022. If it did not execute it before this date, the forward could go free to final of campaign if it wanted to.
Although it is not confirmed, is very likely that in this renewal have considered that have an upper wage to the that will earn the two next courses. It would be something natural taking into account that the player has renounced this same summer to better offers to play in the Camp Nou. Nevertheless, for the moment there is not at all confirmed and it will be necessary to expect to see if the club or the footballer confirm it in the future.
