Memphis Depay joined the English giants Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2015. The Manchester based club signed the winger for a fee of £25m, successfully beating bitter rivals Liverpool to his signature.
A lot was expected from Depay from both the coaches and the fans, after being given the club’s iconic number 7 shirt. But, after showing initial promise, he fizzled out and had an underwhelming season.
It therefore comes as a surprise, when a club of Barcelona’s stature would want such a player.
According to Don Balon, a Spanish weekly sports magazine, the Catalan giants plan to make Memphis Depay their third signing, after recently acquiring French internationals Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne. They see him as a useful squad player.
Manchester United, who paid £25m for Depay, will look to recoup most of the money from this transfer.
