New information affirms that FC Barcelona could include Memphis Depay in the operation for Jules Koundé to lower the total cost of the move. The player is comfortable in Catalonia, but his future is still in 'limbo'
The FC Barcelona has to his clear-cut aims for this market of signings and his intentions to give him a dump total to the staff are increasingly near to fulfil . The 'operation gone out' already has found him new destinations to Francisco Trincao, Philippe Coutinho and Clément Lenglet, whereas the club has closed the 'renewal' of Ousmane Dembélé and the signing of Raphinha, the one who will be today same in the City Condal to close his pass.
However, still there are several names underlined in the list of futuribles of the Barça and one of them is Jules Koundé, the central that more likes to Xavi Hernández to reinforce the defence. The saga is one of the sectors that more movements can have in this window of traspasos, being Andreas Christensen the first in arriving and could be the French the one who follow his steps when joining to the Barcelona discipline.
The Seville has showed firm in his pretences and will not leave to go out to his star by less than 60 million euros, a price that the Barcelona would want to go down through different formulas. One could be including variable in base to aims, but the need of fichar of the hispalenses do little likely this alternative. Another would be to put a player that abarate the movement, something that if it could persuade to the ones of the Sánchez-Pizjuán.
With this on the table, the journalist Gerard Romero aimed in his channel of 'Twitch' that the group blaugrana would be had to offer to Memphis Depay as 'coin of change' by Koundé. The incorporation of the Dutch in the transaction would reduce the cost of the Frenchman to a large extent, leaving him with a value from among 35 and 40 million euros, an affordable sum if the club finishes to close his second 'crowbar' economic this week. Besides, it ensures that the culés would have asked to withdraw the image of the footballer of some promotions, what seeds even more doubts on his continuity.
It will not have space
With the possible arrival of Robert Lewandowski, more the one of Dembélé and Raphinha, the '9' of the Low Countries will not have place inside the plantel of Xavi. The Barça will have all the positions bent as it asked it the egarense and so much Martin Braithwaite like Memphis will remain in the ostracism unless it occur an unexpected twist. Already the attacker showed selfless in the proposal of the Tottenham to purchase his services, but keep in LaLiga could call his attention, more still in his last year of agreement.
