According to information relayed by brand, Memphis Depay is only one step away from Atlético Madrid. The Barça player is now Diego Simeone’s top priority to compensate for the departure of Joao Felix, who has been loaned to Chelsea. The file of Borja Iglesias (Betis Sevilla), who seemed to have the preference of the leaders, would have been postponed until next summer: the Rojiblancos would not have the means to finance his transfer, given that Joao Felix was loaned and not transferred .

The good relationship between Atlético and Barca should help

The daily’s website confirms that Memphis Depay will not be retained by the Catalans. On the contrary, Barça would seek to save his salary, in order to comply with the requirements of financial fair play, or even to clear a margin to find him a replacement. His departure to Atlético Madrid could also be facilitated by the good relations between the two clubs, which recently had to manage the files of Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez.

Memphis Depay arrived at Barça for free in the summer of 2021, after making salary sacrifices. Appreciated by Ronald Koeman, the striker was not appreciated by his successor, Xavi, who rarely gave him a chance. The player still scored 14 goals and delivered 2 assists in 42 appearances under the Blaugrana tunic.

At the Colchoneros, the native of Moordrecht could help Diego Simeone to solve his offensive problems. The Rojiblanca side have scored only 23 goals in 16 Championship games since the start of the season. It currently occupies the 5e position in the La Liga table, which is below the objectives set for the year. The departure of the coach also seems to be in the pipeline, with a view to next summer.
