No Barcelona deal with Memphis Depay, says Lyon chief Aulas

Memphis Depay

The 26-year-old's contract with Lyon runs till 2021 and he may leave for £27m.

If the deal goes through, the 26-year-old worldwide will join compatriots Frenkie de Jong and coach Ronald Koeman, who started Depay regularly when he was in charge of the national team.

Now, the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf believe that a deal for Depay has been sealed for the aforementioned fee.

Depay has scored 46 goals in 103 Ligue 1 games for Lyon, Opta statistics show, since joining from Manchester United in the January 2017 transfer window.


Barcelona and Lyon have reached a €32m deal for Depay, who will be presented to fans later this week, the paper said.

The club are hoping to bounce back strong after a disastrous season where they lost the LaLiga title to their biggest rivals Real Madrid, and were humiliated in their Champions League exit following an 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Edinson Cavani reportedly placed a call to the Barcelona management over a possible deal that could see him join the Catalan giants as their striker this summer. "The players who received offers have already left".

And this is coming barely 48 hours that Barcelona launched what the club describe as urgent operation looking to clear out twelve players in a bid to get funds to bring in at least three new players.
