Memphis Depay does not rule out that he will still make a transfer during the winter break. The attacker of Orange recently saw a transition from Olympique Lyon to FC Barcelona fail, but expects to get another chance soon.
‘Baal that I made fewer minutes at Lyon’
“I’m 26 years old and almost transfer-free, so I’m assuming clubs will come, and we’ll see,” said Memphis, who still has a contract until mid-2021 and is not sure whether he expects Barcelona for him will be back.
The former PSV and Manchester United player understands why Barcelona, which was subject to financial restrictions imposed by the Spanish Football Association, could not bring him in during the last transfer period.
“You always have to take into account that things will not work out. A lot of clubs have problems because of the pandemic,” said Memphis, who remained patient and did not let himself be fooled.
“I kept everything open and didn’t think: Barcelona wants me, so I’m here. It was just a matter of waiting. It’s almost January and the possibility that clubs will come for me is very big.”
The most annoying thing Memphis did not find the ricocheted transition in itself, but the fact that the transfer woes affected his playing time at Lyon. As captain, he started on the bench during the last two matches of the French top club.
“I was going to make fewer minutes and I felt that it had to do with that,” said the born Murderer, who assumes that he will get his starting place back and looks forward to being important again for Lyon in the coming duels.
“We must not forget that I had a very serious injury. I am especially happy that I can play football again. I was able to do a lot when I was injured, so that I was fit and interested again. I have a very good feeling about it and I’m proud of it. “
Memphis first faces Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy in the Nations League with the Orange squad. He has to miss Sunday’s game in Bosnia due to a suspension.
