The Dutch striker could join Juventus this week

Memphis Depay will leave Barcelona in the coming days. His lawyer, Sébastien Ledure, met Tuesday at the Catalan club for the finals the conditions of his departure on a free transfer and everything indicates that an agreement is close, despite the fact that Barça want remuneration for his exit.

Memphis made it clear he would leave the club if it was as a free agent when he arrived at Camp Nou, and Barca have prioritized the economy over his salary given he will have very little minutes this season. He will join Juventus.

The Dutch forward has agreed a deal with Juve before confirming to the Blaugrana that he will be leaving. In Italy, reports suggest he will sign a two-year contract worth a net worth of €6m, more than he earns at Barca – he agreed to a lower salary to help bring the deal to fruition. ‘OK.

If there is an agreement with Barca, Memphis will immediately travel to Italy to sign the contract. Barça will release some salaries but it remains to be seen if this is enough to be able to register Jules Koundé for the match against Real Sociedad or if the salary cut for one of the captains will also be necessary.
