Memphis Depay (28 years old) is one of the players who have the most chances to leave Barça in this next winter market. With his contract ending at the end of the season, the club sees saving his salary favorably. Moreover, him leaving will free up some ‘fair play’ margin. It will allow Barça to carry out other operations. But the situation seems to have changed and the Dutchman could stay at the Camp Nou.
Jose Mourinho and Roma seemed like the team most interested in the signing of Memphis in the month of January. But the latest information coming from Italy indicates that the ‘giallorossi’ club would not be willing to pay the salary that the footballer wants.
According tol ‘Calciomercato’, Memphis wants salary higher than five million euros. Roma are willing to offer this amount to the striker.
The aforementioned information also details that in the coming days a meeting is expected between the environment of Memphis and the executives of Roma to see if the operation can come true. But the Italian club also have some ‘fair play’ problems so it seems difficult for it to be carried out.
Memphis did well in Qatar, reaching the quarterfinals with Netherlands, losing on penalties to Argentina. Now, Memphis Depay has a few days off before rejoining the training of Barça. And when he returns, his situation will be analyzed in detail. Then, a decision will arrive: Either he changes scenery or continues as a Barça player until the end of the season.
