Barcelona forward Memphis Depay appears to be heading for Serie A and Juventus, according to Fabrizio Romano. Depay didn’t want to be part of a crowded Barcelona front line, especially with Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha likely to get playing time over him. This move will help Barcelona financially, as the club has had to sell more of its stake to accommodate new players.
Memphis Depay update. Juventus are getting closer to an agreement with Depay’s camp, talks are progressing well - positive contact also today. ⚪️⚫️ #Juventus— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 12, 2022

It’s looking like Depay, who has tallied 35 goals in the last two seasons, will sign a two-year contract with his new club. There were reports of him potentially looking to go to Tottenham or Turkey, but Depay was always going to get interest from a top club. Tottenham would’ve created the same issue for him as Barcelona, as he’d be behind Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Ivan Perisic.
