Despite his great start atBarcelona
last season, Depay has found no place in Xavi’s Barcelona since Koeman’s sacking. The former Lyon winger has only featured in 122 minutes of game time for Barcelona so far, which is one-fifth of the amount of time he has played for the Netherlands since the start of the season. Barcelona was trying to ship him off in the summer but no agreements were reached.
Depay who formerly did a stint at Manchester United, is valued around €20m but could go for a lot less since his contract is up in June 2023.
