According to the latest information from Mundo Deportivo, everything indicates that Memphis Depay will leave Barça in the next few hours. The former Lyonnais is aware that he will not have the notoriety he wants in Catalonia, and the arrivals of Lewandowski and Raphinha therefore push him towards the exit. The number 9 currently occupied by Depay could therefore be recovered by Lewandowski next Friday, during his presentation at Camp Nou.

Direction Juve for Memphis?
Under contract until June 2023 with Barcelona, the Catalan club would like to obtain around 20 million euros with the sale of Memphis. Juventus could make the deal in the form of a paid loan, with a mandatory purchase option at the end of the season, set at 20 million. Juve, which has seen Dybala or even Bernardeschi leave the club, should therefore quickly look into Memphis, which appears to be a good option to complete the attack on the Old Lady.
Be careful for Juventus not to be overtaken on this file. Manchester United, Lyon, Tottenham, Newcastle or even PSG have shown their interest from near or far for the Dutch international. At the moment, the Old Lady is staying one step ahead of the case. The outcome of this transfer should settle before the first day of La Liga, on August 13 for Barça, against Rayo Vallecano.
Memphis Depay has never looked so close to leaving Barcelona. Arrived last summer from OL, the Dutch striker will never have convinced in Catalonia. A departure that would allow Lewandowski to recover number 9, currently occupied by the Dutchman.
