"The majority of the attackers of the Barcelona want the balloon in the feet, Memphis can use like starting point, but also can send it in depth. It is strong, dynamic and can play so much from the forward as from the left", argued.

The trainer of the FC Barcelona ensured that it already had tied to Memphis Depay from summer and that only the frustrated sale of Ousmane Dembélé avoided the arrival of his compatriot. "Of course that I spoke him of my ideas in advance. In principle all was smart, but because of the rules of The League knew that first we had to sell a player. At the end no sucedió. Pity, but Memphis also knew which was the situation", sentenced.
