Barcelona Transfer News: Many people were surprised to see Memphis Depay on the team after Barcelona sold players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Martin Braithwaite, Philippe Coutinho, and Nico Gonzalez during the summer transfer window.
Even though there was a lot of talk about his long-term future at the club, the Dutchman ended up staying at Camp Nou.
It’s no secret that the Catalans didn’t want to keep him. The attacker could not only leave because the club asked for a lot of money for him.
And now, Fichajes says that Barcelona is still talking with other clubs about the possibility of trading Depay in January.
Sevilla is one of the clubs talking to the Catalans about the Dutchman. During the summer transfer window, the Spanish powerhouses were rumored to be interested in signing the young player from Manchester United. However, the club and Barca were unable to come to a deal.
The Blaugrana didn’t want to give up the attacker for a low price. Because of this, the move couldn’t happen.
But that could soon change as Barcelona starts to change its mind about Depay and thinks about the possibility of letting him go for less money.
After all, Depay’s contract with Camp Nou ends at the end of the season. It means that if Barcelona can’t get rid of the attacker in January, they might have to let him go for free in the summer.
So, there has been talk of Depay moving to Sevilla in January. He is seen as the best player to solve Julen Lopetegui’s attacking problems.
Los Nervionenses have had a terrible start to the season. In their first five games, they only won one. They have only scored six goals so far, which has made it even more important to get more offensive players in January.
In this case, Depay could be a good fix. The Dutchman has a lot of experience and may have the ability to score goals that Sevilla needs to get back on track this season.
