Barcelona is getting more and more optimistic that they can keep Memphis Depay after the January transfer deadline
After only having a little role at Camp Nou in 2022–2023, the Dutch international has been heavily connected with a potential exit from Barcelona in the winter transfer market.
Depay made a suggestion that he would be interested in leaving the team while on World Cup duty for 2022 last month, and La Blaugrana also plans to cut their payroll for 2023.
The 28-year-old forward’s contract in Catalonia expires at the end of the current campaign, and there is no likelihood of a renewal being offered this month. He is reportedly prepared to commit to Barcelona for the remainder of the season, according to sources from The Athletic, despite the continuous rumours regarding his next move.
Depay will have the opportunity to join any team for free this summer without having to pay a transfer fee if he stays at Barcelona.
The colchoneros’ offence has a vacancy when Joo Félix left for Chelsea, and Memphis has been one of the candidates mentioned. The attacker is eager to join a major club where he can play more often because he doesn’t receive much playing time for FC Barcelona. Additionally, the clubs get along well with one another.
