Pushed towards the exit by FC Barcelona, Memphis Depay has a good rating. The Dutch striker could return to Ligue 1, where Olympique de Marseille is ready to get out of its Catalan galley.
Depay could leave Barcelona this summer.
Memphis Depay (28) a last known season… special. Essential with Ronald Koeman, the Dutch striker has clearly fallen back in the hierarchy following the arrival of Xavi.
Blessed for many weeks at the start of the calendar year, the Batavian (13 goals in 38 games) never managed to reverse the trend. A delicate situation that could push him into exile.
Longoria eyeing Depay
In recent days, there has been talk of a departure from FC Sville. The Blaugrana leaders want to use it as a bargaining chip to lower the bill in the desired deal for Jules Kound, estimated at 65 million euros. If the Andalusian option seems attractive, the Oranje could refuse to be discounted this point by their superiors after joining the club with the aim of clearing an additional ceiling in their career. A thorny file for the vice-champion of Spain, who could have a major ally: Olympique de Marseille.
Indeed, the southern club is particularly interested in the arrival of Depay. According to Le Phocen, Pablo Longoria, who puts a lot on the recruitment of free players, wants to achieve a big blow on this transfer window. The arrival of the former Manchester United player, in his prime and performing when he is confident, is Peruvian as a great sporting added value by the Marseille president. For this, he seeks to degrease a maximum in order to save high salaries, like that of Steve Mandanda, on the departure for Rennes.
An affordable price
In terms of price, Depay is largely affordable since his management, who wants to either extend him or sell him, one year from the end of his contract, values him at nearly 20 million euros. An accessible price for OM, which strongly needs a prolific and self-sufficient striker, unlike Arkadiusz Milik, to perform on all fronts. If he wants to play in the Champions League with a major role, the former captain of Olympique Lyonnais could find the ideal place on the side of the Vélodrome.
