Memphis Depay is one step closer to leaving Barcelona. The Dutch striker reached full agreement with Serie A powerhouse Juventus on a two-year contract. The ‘vecchia signora’ will pay him close to 7 million euros a year in salary, according to a report from Matteo Moretto of Relevo.

Memphis Depay and Juve are negotiating personal terms for several days now. But a deal has finally been reached, and there’s one obstacle left: reaching an agreement with Barça. The Catalans can either terminate Depay’s contract or negotiate a small, “symbolic” transfer fee to complete the transfer. Therefore, we can expect to find out about the club’s decision very soon.
Barça want to close the deal on Memphis as soon as possible to get his salary off the books and complete the registration of their new signings. They managed to register six players on Friday. But the club still needs the green light from La Liga on the transfers of Jules Koundé and Marcos Alonso. Depay’s departure will help them achieve that goal.
