This Monday at night, the Dutch media 'Telegraaf' ensured that the FC Barcelona and the Olympique Lyon had arrived to an agreement for the traspaso of Memphis Depay in return of 25 million fixed euros more other five of variables. A news that ran like the gunpowder when treating of the forward that Ronald Koeman carries demanding since it arrived to replace to Luis Suárez.
Through the Catalan media, the FC Barcelona denied that the agreement was closed still but from the Olympique Lyon have gone even more far.

Like this the things, everything seems to indicate that the signing of Memphis Depay will follow postponing at least until it have resolved the 'operation gone out'. Players like Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal or Samuel Umtiti do not go in in the plans of Ronald Koeman and elevate the mass salarial until some levels that do not allow important manoeuvres to level of signings.
