Barcelona have reached an agreement to sign Memphis Depay


Barcelona are looking to sign the Netherlands winger Memphis Depay this summer.

According to reports the Spanish club have reached an agreement with the player and they are now waiting to secure an agreement with his club now.

Ronald Koeman has worked with Depay during his time as the Netherlands manager and he is keen on a reunion at club level as well.

The former Manchester United winger will add pace and goals to the side if he joins Barcelona.

The Spanish giants could use a left sided attacker like him and it will be interesting to see if they can get the deal over the line before the transfer window closes.

Barcelona are expected to lose Luis Suarez this summer and they will have to replace the Uruguayan’s goals in the team.

It will be interesting to see who comes in to replace the striker eventually.

Depay can certainly share the goalscoring burden next season but he is not a prolific goal scorer like Suarez. It will be important for Barcelona to bring in a proven goal scorer who can play alongside Messi and Depay.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have been linked with a move for the Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum as well.

The Dutchman is in the final year of his contract at Liverpool and Ronald Koeman wants to bring him to  Camp Nou.

It will be interesting to see if the Spanish outfit can agree on a deal with the Premier League champions. Why not the major key player for Liverpool and the Reds will not look to sell for cheap this summer.
