Memphis Depay Spoke with 'Sportive World' in his first official interview since it is player of the FC Barcelona. The Dutch is living very acutely his first days like Barcelona and left clear that is loved with his mates, with the club and with all what is seeing. "It is a very beautiful city, the time is glorious, the food is very good, the people is kind", began.

The forward left clear that Barcelona is the perfect city for him and that in this sense could not be happier. "Only I have good words, is a perfect combination between the city and the club of football, could not ask a better place", aimed. On the other hand, also it discovered when and how it was the first time that the Barça called to his door to do with his services.

"It does long, perhaps it does a year, something like this. I remember this day, seat you very well when a club like this interests by you, does you feel very well and gives you an extra of confidence, means that you are doing the things well. It was a big day", signalled. It fits to remember that the interest of the blaugrana comes of long and that, as it aims Memphis, the Catalans tried ficharle the past summer, although they finish descartándolo by an economic question.

Besides, Depay explained the process of his signing by the Barça, that lengthened more than the wished. "I spoke with the trainer to see what was possible or no. It said me that we were not in an easy time in the club and that we had to do movements and do different things to which were doing , and also when changing I of agency did it everything a bit longer. But for me it was the perfect moment and for the club also and decide to do it now", stood out.

'MD' wanted to know from when had an agreement the attacker to play in the Barcelona, but the ex of the Olympique of Lyon left clear that only his lawyers can have this information. "I do not know at all of this. Where you have heard it? Always there are a lot of rumours on these things, but I try to be always centred in the field and leave the part of the businesses to my lawyers. I do not know if this is truth", indicated.

Depay Always dreamed with the Barça

Finally, it explained an anecdote of boy on his grandfather and on his charm by the Barça, that comes of far. "Memory that in the street and in the club where played called me 'the small Patrick Kluivert' by the peel and the T-shirt that carried of him. My mother explained me that my grandfather gave it to me and that a day said me that it went to play here, is a beautiful history and never leave to dream. It is what say, it is necessary to dream in big from small, all the boys have to do it, and work hard also", concluded.
