Jean Michel Classrooms, current president of the Olympique of Lyon, affirmed, in the day of yesterday, that the informations, that proceed of Holland, in which it ensures that the FC Barcelona and Olympique of Lyon had arrived to an agreement of 25 million euros and 5 variables by Memphis Depay, are false. Still it has not presented an offer still.

Like this it did it know in social networks: "The president of the Barça (Josep Maria Bartomeu) said me the Sunday that the Barça was suffering a lot by the crisis of the Covid and did not have possibility to do an offer. #memphis". With this tuit, Classrooms, desvela the conversation that was supported by Bartomeu and resolved once and for all the rumours about the signing.

This information warns a distinct stage. If theI nter of Milan prices to Lautaro in 80 million euros, and the Barça neither if it want to can make an offer by Memphis Depay, will have to look for a third road to solve his problem in the position of leading centre. Perhaps it would have to fichar to a more economic forward that can surrender well this season.

Although thinking it better, for fichar a patch, already have to Martin Braithwaite. The player is still in the staff, as so many others that expected to see was, after the promise of revolution of the Dutch technician. The Danish player has not had a lot of opportunities in the Camp Nou, and in spite of that, is evident that is not a forward for the Barça, when it has played has not done it badly.

If it does not arrive a forward there are more options

Another option is the one to reconvert to a player. In the last weeks has spoken a lot of Ansu Fati, but definitely, the first option to occupy this square, for Koeman, will be the one of Griezmann, that, in spite of being a leading second, can occupy this zone working of 'false 9'. Apart from these two players, even Dembélé played in this position in some meeting of the past season.

Finally, perhaps the less pleasant option for the club and for the start of a new project of renewal in Can Barça, remain with Suárez. It would be a very big shrinking for the new Barça, but in spite of his age, keeps on being a forward of quality. In fact, it seems that the Uruguayan grasps to the Barça as to a nail burning, waiting for that they do not find to a forward.
