The future of Memphis follows being in the 'air'. In spite of the good performance showed during the pre-season, Depay would have foot and half out of the FC Barcelona. The signings of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha, added to the 'extension of the agreement' of Ousmane Dembélé and the recovery of Ansu, would leave him without place in the staff of Xavi Hernández. Besides, the problems of the Catalan entity with the 'fair play' financial force them to lighten the mass salarial, by what from Can Barça look for to give off of the 'León'.

By his part, and although his priority was to be still in the City Condal, Depay understands that his participation in the team would become almost testimonial, and with the World-wide to the 'gone back of the corner' has decided to change of 'airs', as long as it was under his own terms. And it is that the footballer considers that the 20 million euros that pretended to perceive the culés by his traspaso are 'exaggerated', by what his lawyers find negotiating with the club a road to be able to go out like free agent.

However, and while his situation defines , the Barcelona entity has awarded him a new dorsal. After yielding the number '9' to Robert Lewandowki, the Dutch will carry, until the moments, the '14' that left Nico González when going out with course to Valencia. Like this then , the ex goleador of the Lyon joins to a list of historical footballers that dressed said number during his go through the Barça, between which are Thierry Henry, Hristo Stoichkov, Ronald Koeman, among others.

On the other hand, in the Juventus of Turín follow attentive to the negotiations of the player with the Catalan group. According to the journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 'bianconeri' already have an agreement with the forward by two seasons, by what expect that the footballer achieve the rescission of his agreement to concretise his incorporation. Of equal form, the specialist in signings ensures that the Tottenham has not communicated with Memphis, by what to day of today is unlikely that put course to the Premier.

The continuity of Aubameyang is key

Nevertheless, the stay of the of Moordretch would not be entirely descartada, since although Xavi already ensured that it has Aubameyang to 100%, Chelsea follows insisting in the signing of the gabonés. If in Stamford Bridge attain to do with the services of the new '17' culé, the square directed by the egarense will close him the doors to Depay so that it fulfil the role of substitute of Lewandowski.

Pjanic Already has dorsal

In another order of ideas, the continuity of Miralem Pjanic already is entirely confirmed after in Can Barça awarded him the dorsal '16', which was used by Pedri from his arrival to the City Condal. Of this way, the bosnio premières dorsal after having carried the '8' during his first stage in the club. In the meantime, Braithwaite and Umtiti do not have a number assigned since they will not play in the Camp Nou this season and are looking for an exit.
