Memphis will be a free agent in June

In a process that has been in progress since Ronald Koeman took over as Barcelona manager, Memphis Depay and the Blaugrana have reached an agreement on the terms of his signing with the LaLiga giants. However, this is provided that there isn’t a change in the coaching position. Since Joan Laporta was elected as the new president of the club, Koeman’s job security has been up and down, taking over from the administration of Josep Maria Bartomeu, who appointed the Dutchman. If Laporta decides to change the dugout, this will shake up the situation with Depay, and it will be necessary to resume negotiations. Memphis will be a free agent in June, and given that he wants to work with Koeman, he has cut his salary requirements to join his fellow countryman at Barcelona next year.

Barcelona are in a uniquely challenging financial situation

The Dutch coach knows Depay’s skillset very well and has been adamant since last summer that he should be signed. He is a centre forward who can play from a wide position and scores a lot of goals. Even if the Depay deal is finalized, there is no suggestion that the door will be closed to the signing of an additional forward. The Blaugrana are in a uniquely challenging financial position. However, one of their own making and the current administration needs to fully assess the finances available before finalizing the summer transfer window targets. Neymar’s renewal at Paris Saint-Germain has taken the Brazilian’s possible return off the table, while Erling Haaland remains a high-profile but high-cost target.

That is why the club is emerging to prioritize the players who will be available on the free transfer, with Eric Garcia joining the club, and it looks like Depay could follow suit.
