The FC Barcelona has clear that needs fichar a forward this summer and Ronald Koeman has put the name of his favourite on of the table from his arrival. The Dutch wants that his compatriot Memphis Depay seen of Barcelona and is trying to convince to the club so that it decide to go to by him. In the Barça want to apurar the option Lautaro Martínez, but the Argentinian is very complicated, whereas the Dutch is much more accessible.

The attacker of the Olympique of Lyon finishes agreement in 2021 and for now has denied to renew. This situation does that a traspaso this summer was more than possible, since the French could finish losing him free inside a campaign. By this reason, in the Barcelona see him like an interesting option, but do not want to do an important outlay by him, since it does not have this profile of 'crack' that yes possesses Lautaro.

Depay Also knows to kick faults

Taking into account all this, in the newspaper 'L' Équipe' have explained the one who could be the plan of the Catalans for fichar to the ex of the Manchester United at good cost. According to the mentioned half, the barcelonistas could tighten the rope the maximum possible and expect to the closing of the market of signings to do a proposal to the drop. Without margin of reaction, this could force to the Frenchmen to sell to the footballer so that it do not go free a year afterwards.

The big fear of the Olympique would be that this sucediera, since Depay does not seem to have intention any to expand his links with the French picture. it was saying That Jean-Michel Classrooms, president of the Lyon, goes to ask no less than 25 or 30 million euros to leave him go out. The culés would not be had to arrive to this quantity, by what perhaps opt for testing luck and expect to the last moment offering quite less.

A risky plan, but with possibilities

This strategy that aim in France would be risked, since it can that the Barça finish remaining without the forward. It fits the possibility that the Frenchmen prefer to remain to his captain and risk to that go free. In a year can happen a lot of things and the French would try to convince him to renew during all the course. The another option, will be malvenderle by the figure that propose the Barcelona, that still does not know which will be.

On the other hand, Koeman wants to explain what before with all the players with which will have to explain this season in the Barcelona. The Dutch needs to work with all and would prefer that Depay could arrive what before, since expect until finals of September or beginnings of October would delay the adaptation of the attacker. Nevertheless, in the club have other plans and could await the maximum possible to try do good the idea published by 'L' Équipe'.
