Memphis Depay Has been presented officially like player of the FC Barcelona, after several weeks of wait after the announcement of his signing, pertinent of the Olympique of Lyon, like free agent. The Dutch signed his agreement in an act in the Camp Nou, dressed of short to jump to the field of the Camp Nou and offered his first words to the press like Barcelona player.
After a brief introduction of Joan Laporta, in which it recognised that "Memphis is a player with a lot of personality, inside and out of the field, think that we need this type of players", the protagonist of the afternoon took the word to comment on his feelings after signing the agreement with the Barça and answer the doubts of the press.
The player of 27 years has begun saying that "it is an honour be here, fulfil a dream of small. It has done the will thanks to the two parts. I give the thanks to the president and to his board.

The registration of Depay like culé
To consequence of the delicate economic crisis by which crosses the club, the reality is that for the moment the blaugrana can not process the registration of Depay in the staff (neither the one of the rest of players) until recessing the mass salarial in 50%, a very important figure to assume, by what the Barça has to become attached to the norm '1 to 4' of LaLiga, something in what they are working with the exits and discounts salariales.
However, it is not something that concerns him for the moment to Depay because it trusts Laporta and the rest of directors. "No, it does not concern me for nothing, first I am centred in the game, and afterwards the president already has commented that are looking for creative formulas. I am safe that the president and the board will occupy of them and with the turn of the fans to the stadium, sure that it will be different", sentenced.
