Depay wants to leave Barcelona with Inter looking to pounce on the opportunity

Before the January transfer window ends, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are competing to capture Barcelona attacker Memphis Depay

Although talks are still going on and Depay is keen to joining Atletico, no agreement has yet been reached. There have also been rumours of a Marcelo Brozovic trade with Inter, with Barca manager Xavi apparently eager to sign the Croatian midfielder.

Depay may be more interested in moving to Atletico though, especially since the La Liga team needs to replace Joao Felix. Atletico Madrid is in severe need of offensive reinforcements as a result of the Portuguese star’s loan move to Chelsea till the end of the current campaign.

Depay has struggled to make an impact with Barca, but if given the chance to work for Atletico manager Diego Simeone, he might find new inspiration. Depay would join David Villa, Luis Suarez, and Antoine Griezmann in joining Atletico from Barcelona if he moved to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Before they finalised a loan deal for Burnley striker Wout Weghorst, Manchester United was connected to Depay. For the Dutchman, joining Atletico would make perfect sense because he would be a surefire starter given their present dearth of striker alternatives.

Only two La Liga appearances this season for the international from the Netherlands at Barcelona. Depay is the ideal choice for Atletico because he has 13 goals in 30 La Liga appearances and might believe he still has unfinished business in Spain.
