Memphis Depay moves away from Barça and points to Milan

The signing of Memphis Depay for him Barcelona It has become a puzzle for the Blaugrana in recent days. When everyone took the Dutchman's arrival at Camp Nou for granted, Jean-Michel Aulas, president of Olympique Lyon, said on social media that Bartomeu had told him that they had no money to sign the forward.

According to Sky Sports Italia, Memphis Depay's future could be in Serie A. More specifically in Milan and as a bargaining chip in the signing of Lucas Paquetá. The former Flamengo player, who landed in Lombardy in 2019, is to the liking of the Lyon board and could include Memphis in the operation to lower its cost.

Meanwhile, Barcelona cannot undertake the signing of the Dutch international until it certifies the departures of Luis Suárez and Vidal. The Uruguayan was in Italy yesterday and successfully passed his Italian exam to obtain European nationality, but his departure has yet to be finalized. Lyon need to put together the squad for this season as soon as possible and could intensify negotiations with Milan to trade Memphis with Paquetá.
