"I want to go to one of the three better teams of the world", went the recent statements of the Dutch forward Memphis Depay, the one who from France has gone back to fill of illusion to the barcelonismo. However, the Catalan club right now does not have the sufficient financial muscle to make the signing, that is an ancient demand of the trainer, Ronald Koeman, the one who from the exit of the Uruguayan Luis Suárez has seen as obviously the team has lost gunpowder in attack.

Depay Finishes agreement this summer of 2021 with the Olympique of Lyon and seems to have decided since it does not go to continue in the French group. In fact, voices linked to the player ensure that it has not accepted to converse on his renewal with the club Frenchman, that already lost to Moussa Dembélé, the one who is near to debut with the Athletic of Madrid in front of the Eibar. This version, that moves away The Beast, is ratified with his statements to Channel+.

"We know that we play for a very big club, but want to go to one of the three better clubs of the world. Then they will see that Houssem will improve ten times. I, the same", went exactly what said the born in Moordrecht, the one who in his 20 parties in this season already has marked 11 goals and has given five assistances, a register that need in the Barcelona to accompany to Leo Messi that it is leader in the table of goleadores of The League also with 11 targets.

But from December the operation by the forward luce simply difficult. First, resulta complicated that the Lyon leave to go to another forward in full fight by Tie it 1, at present situate third with 40 points, only to two of the leader Paris Saint Germain (PSG). And on the other hand, the accounts of the Barcelona are collapsed, the big mass salarial does not give as for fichar without selling before. To finish, the elections have delayed until March by the pandemia and the three presidential candidates of the entity have given orders to the Managing Commission of not doing any movement.

Another limitante, in front of the economic difficulties, is that the sportive direction culé has clearer that need to reinforce the defence with Eric García, of the Manchester City, a signing that see like an option much more prioritaria. This last, taking in account the mejoría of the French Antonie Griezmann and the good rhythm that carries Leo Messi of face to the arch.

Therefore, it will be very complicated that Depay was the new nine of Koeman in January and everything will remain in suspense for next summer. What seems sure is the exit of the player of the Lyon, but no the destination. He same is conscious that big clubs of all Europe are interested in his services, especially in time in which escasea leading of his level. The own Real Madrid could go in in the career in front of the failure of Luka Jović. Other squares like the Juventus and the PSG also would be interested.

By how much would go out Depay?

The Dutch finish agreement in June of this year and, although it could go out by five million euros in the present market, the group of the Ródano as we have signalled has like main aim the one to keep to his star until final of season.
