Memphis Depay No cuajó the best possible performance with Holland in the Eurocopa and now poses a big doubt: Which will be his paper in the Barça?
Memphis Depay Has been one of the four signings crash of the FC Barcelona in this window of transfers. The Dutch has arrived like request of Ronald Koeman to reinforce the forward and will be one of the new attendants to head to the culés to the goal. However, it is the doubt of which will be his paper, conciendo that, in addition to the 'overbooking' in the attack, plays in the same position that Leo Messi.
In any case, in the Barça celebrated in style the traspaso of Depay but now there is some doubt in the environment, after his performance in the Eurocopa with Holland, in which it did not show to be the big offensive leader of the 'Oranje'. It is true that his numbers are very positive (72% of tarpaulin in the passes, with 126 correct of 171 attempts, twelve occasions of goal, two targets and an assistance). However, it has remained 'short' and did not fulfil with the expectations.
It is the feeling that, of some way, left without dejajr footprint in the Euro. In the eighth, cuando the 'Oranje' more needed it, finished happening unobserved and is something that lights the alarms of face to his future in the FC Barcelona because, although it is true that moves very well by the front of the attack, plays of backs properly and turns with skill to generate danger, did not finish being totally determinant for the Dutch (was surpassed, for example, by Dumfries).
The factor Leo Messi
Memphis Occupies in a lot of passages orna position centred in the terrain of game, something that will not be able to do when it share in the field with Leo Messi, besides that it will not be the referent of the team to begin the played (as it accustoms), or be the one who hammers to the space or the one who take out the unemployed balloons, because they are the 'roles' of 'The Flea' (and his paper is innegociable).
The true is that Ronald Koeman will have a complicated work for cnseguir the 'convivencia' between both figures. That the trainer determine which will be the function of Depay in his approach (very different to which has had in the Lyon and Holland) so that no 'bump' with the exert of Messi. What yes will happen is that, to the equal that with Antoine Griezmann, will happen to be concerning companion.
