Memphis Depay leaves FC Barcelona for rivals

Memphis Depay’s transfer from Barcelona to Atlético Madrid has been agreed upon, and it should become official at any moment.

Memphis has been considering leaving Barcelona for about six months, but last summer, the club turned down offers to join Newcastle and Galatasaray. Since his deal with Barcelona was set to expire in June, a summer departure was always a possibility. However, his exit has coming.

Memphis Depay is currently an Atlético Madrid player following his physical assessment at the Clnica Universidad de Navarra. The remaining of the season plus two more years are anticipated under his contract. According to barcablaugranes.com, Barcelona will receive three million euros, plus bonuses and the possibility to sign Yannick Carrasco for between 15 and 20 million euros.

The Dutch international will likely play much more frequently at Atletico Madrid than he did at Barcelona now that Joao Felix is moving on to Chelsea. This may be the reason he was so eager to join Atletico Madrid.
