FC Barcelona and Olympique Lyon have reportedly reached an agreement on the transfer of Memphis Depay. The Telegraaf reports Tuesday that it is a maximum of 32 million euros, although the newspaper also writes later in the day that the Spanish Football Association is currently obstructing.

Memphis decisive player at Lyon

Barcelona would not be able to meet the conditions set by the Spanish government in granting aid to limit the financial consequences of the corona crisis at the moment.

The La Liga clubs that have applied for wage compensation from the government are only allowed to spend half of the income on transfers. This is to prevent players from being attracted with community money.

According to The Telegraph Depay’s transfer involves EUR 30 million, plus EUR 2 million in bonuses. Barcelona would then have to demonstrate that the club has received 60 million euros in revenue, but has not yet been able to do so. That is why the transfer has been blocked for the time being.

The 26-year-old Memphis has long been mentioned as a potential reinforcement at Barcelona, ​​where Ronald Koeman has been a trainer since last month. Koeman exchanged the Dutch national team for the Spanish top club and therefore knows Memphis well.

Memphis started his career at PSV in 2011. He made a name for himself in Eindhoven as a top talent and was brought to Manchester United by Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2015. However, he did not break through in England.

Three years ago Memphis settled near Lyon, where he found his niche. He became a basic player, rose to captain and so far has scored 140 official games, 57 goals and 43 assists on behalf of the French club.

Memphis still has a one-year contract in Lyon and is reportedly unwilling to sign up. His club will have to sell the attacker this summer to get money for him.

According to reports, fellow international Georginio Wijnaldum is also high on Koeman’s wish list. The former player of Feyenoord and PSV also has a contract with Liverpool until mid-2021.
