It’s no secret, and Lionel Messi recently acknowledged in an interview: FC Barcelona has no more money. So much so that the 5 million euros claimed by Olympique Lyonnais for Memphis Depay (26 years old, 17 games and 8 goals in L1 this season), free next June, seem out of reach for the Catalans.
Especially since if Barça has money to invest in the month of January, he will do so for a central defender according to information from Mundo Deportivo, more precisely Eric Garcia (19 years old, 3 games in the Premier League this season) from Manchester City. Too bad for Depay, who has still not ruled out the idea of signing for Barcelona during the next winter transfer window according to the American channel CBS Sports.
If it is not for this winter, it will be for next summer. MD leaves no room for doubt: Depay has had a contractual agreement with Barca for several months, and he will sign freely in July when his Lyon contract ends.
