At the end of his contract in Lyon, Memphis Depay has a very precise idea of what he expected in the future.
This Sunday, Memphis Depay will play its very last match under the tunic of Olympique Lyonnais. After a four-year adventure, the Dutchman will turn the page on Gones and open a new chapter in his career. A change of course on which he projected in an interview with The Team.
Two days before the meeting against Nice, the Lyon star has therefore delivered a few words on the result. “I want to go to one of the top two or three clubs in the big five leagues. Where it will be, I don’t know yet, it’s not clear yet, but that’s my goal. And if people don’t put me on the list of players at that level, they’ve got a problem with me. Because I know I can be a part of it. And I also show it in selection. “
“There is nothing done with Barça”
FC Barcelona was cited as the most likely destination for the former Mancunian. The transfer was even very close to being done last summer. Are the Blaugrana still holding the rope for its acquisition? His answer. “They showed interest, but other clubs as well. And there is nothing done ”. The presence of Ronald Koeman would also not be preponderant in his choice : “It is a question for them, not for me”, he underlined.
Depay also further explained why he recently separated from his agents: “I can negotiate a good deal myself. Instead of having an after-the-fact meeting with my agents, I want to know things live, without a middleman. I want to know what my future club really thinks of me, and to know it live. I will not attend all the meetings, but I want to know exactly where we are, why a club wants me ”. His suitors are therefore warned.
