Atlético made official this Wednesday the arrival of Moussa Dembélé from Lyon. The Frenchman will play on loan in Madrid with a purchase option and his signing affects Barça. With this departure, Olympique will not allow Depay to leave in January
The Athletic of Madrid has done official this Wednesday in the afternoon the cession of Moussa Dembélé, that will play in Wanda Metropolitan until final of season. The French arrives pertinent of the Olympique of Lyon and the colchoneros have saved an option of purchase to remain it in property. The own French team confirmed the operation in a communiqué. "The Olympique Lyonnais informs of the cession of Moussa Dembélé to the Athletic of Madrid until 30 June 2021", wrote.
The figures of the loan also have done official and seems that the rojiblancos have paid 1,5 million euros by the forward. The option of purchase is optional and will be of 33,5 'kilos' that they could become 5 more by aims, in addition to a plusvalía of 10% in a possible sale in the future. It will be necessary to see how goes him to the Frenchman in Madrid, since of this will depend that the ones of the Cholo Simeone remain or no with him.
To 'priori', seems an interesting incorporation like alternative to Luis Suárez after the exit of Diego Coast. The one of Pontoise is a tip with goal, fast, strong and physicist, that can be decisive to the against in the Madrilenian picture. Technically it leaves doubts, but in a diagram of Simeone can be an important arrival to give a break to Suárez and contribute greater danger to the attack.
But further of what can contribute Dembélé in the Atleti, it is necessary to stand out how goes to influence his course of the Lyon in the FC Barcelona. The exit of the attacker involves that the ones of the Ródano remain without a forward less for rotar. It is true that the Frenchman was playing much less this campaign in comparison to the past, when it was indisputable, but this does not remove that it leave an active valuable to the hour of the rotations.
The exit of Dembélé closes the door to Depay
By this reason, now is still less likely that the French leave that Memphis Depay go in this market of winter. Before oficializara this operation already was little likely that accessed to negotiate by him, but in these moments seems almost impossible that the Dutch go out of Lyon in January. Everything aims that the club apurará his options to renew him and in case that they do not attain it, something that is highly likely, will leave that it go free in summer.
Besides, it is necessary to take into account that the Barça neither has of money to face up to the traspaso of the Dutch in winter. The Catalans expected to do box with some player and can tackle so much the arrival of the attacker like the one of Eric García, but goes to be complicated. Also it is necessary to say that without a new president will not be able to do signings and that the elections of 24 January peligran seriously by the pandemia. In case that they delay , something very possible, the barcelonistas will not do movements in January.
