A recent report from MARCA has offered an update on Memphis Depay’s situation in Barcelona. The Dutchman is one of few players who could be offloaded in the upcoming January transfer window.
This is because Depay has found it difficult to make an impact in the ongoing season, featuring only in a limited number of matches. Barcelona are also upset with his late recovery from an injury, with the player now falling behind in the pecking order.
In light of the surplus of attacking players, Barcelona are desperate to get rid of Depay in January. They see his departure as vital in their bid to reduce the wage bill.
Depay, for his part, has not ruled out the possibility of departing Camp Nou in January. However, he has appeared quite reluctant in joining any club that come calling for him and is only holding out for a team that can offer him regular Champions League football.
The Dutchman’s wage demands have also proven to be an issue for many European clubs. It has only delayed the prospect of his potential departure from Camp Nou.
Barcelona, meanwhile, were thought to be keen on handing Depay a letter of freedom in January. But they do not see it as a viable option for the time being, considering the fact that the former Manchester United starlet’s valuation could rise significantly if he performs in the World Cup.
Therefore, the Catalans are calm about the situation at the moment and are willing to play the waiting game. It appears a lot could be clarified after the World Cup, as far as Depay’s future is concerned.
The forward recently made his return from injury by appearing as a substitute in the opening game against Senegal. He is expected to play a key role for the Oranje in the rest of the tournament.
