Memphis Depay Was the big obsession of Ronald Koeman​ for the forward of the FC Barcelona in the past market of signings of summer. The Dutch trainer asked to his compatriot at all more sign by the group barcelonista and insisted a lot in that it needed him to complete his line of attack. Nevertheless, the culés could not tackle the traspaso by fault of liquidity and finally the attacker remained in the Olympique of Lyon.

The answer of Depay left even more opened the door to that the Dutch finish fichando by another group. "I am 26 years old and I am almost free, so you can expect that the clubs interest by me, no?", it signalled.

"Anybody can foresee the future, but if I do very what have to do, the interest by me will continue and perhaps then suceda", commented.

Besides, Memphis also explained how was his frustrated signing by the Barcelona. It seems that it had it all fact, but left to fall that it did not consummate by the economic problems of the culés by the subject of the 'Fair Play Financial'. "The agreement was very near.
