Memphis Depay’s transfer to Juventus is dependent on contract termination with Barcelona

Depay

Juventus is in the transfer market to sign a striker to bolster their attacking options. The Old Lady signed Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window as a first-choice striker. However, the manager prefers to employ a formation with two up front. Memphis Depay has been identified as an option for the squad.

The departure of Alvaro Morata after his loan expired and Paulo Dybala on a free transfer has left the club shy of attacking options. The club hierarchy has identified Memphis Depay as an option since the Dutchman has fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou.

Xavi Hernandez has signed Robert Lewandowski and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to play as the strikers in the team. Memphis Depay will not be able to get adequate playing minutes at Barcelona.

However, the Dutch international has reportedly agreed on terms with Juventus for a transfer this summer. But the striker is still contracted to Barcelona and needs to terminate his contract before signing a new one. Barcelona is willing to let the striker leave the club, however, the terms of termination are a problem.

Memphis Depay has become an outcast at Barcelona

The Dutch international has been ostracized at Barcelona after Ronald Koeman was sacked. The player is not used in competitive games and is often left out of important games. The club is desperately trying to offload the 28-year-old in order to register the new signings.

Memphis Depay earns €5 million at Barcelona. With simple add-ons, the Dutch international earns €9 million at Barcelona. The Old Lady is unable to afford the high wage and has offered Memphis Depay a two-year contract with an annual salary of €6 million.

Juventus is eager to complete the transfer for Memphis Depay to strengthen their attack. The Old Lady wants to reclaim their league title and challenge the Milan clubs for Italian supremacy. However, It will be interesting to see if the striker will be able to negotiate his contract termination with Barcelona as it all depends on it!!
