The Dutch forward can leave if a big offer arrives this summer

But nothing has been ruled out and he could yet stay at Camp Nou

Barcelona want to deal with Memphis Depay's future without fuss. The only thing for certain right now is that if a big offer comes in, something that has not happened yet, he can leave, but everything else beyond on that is on ice until July.

The Dutch striker will do preseason with the first team and a decision will then be made depending on signings, Ansu Fati's fitness and the options still on the transfer market for player and club.

Memphis ended the season in good form and Xavi values his versatility. Despite that, there are other priorities in attack and if everything goes to plan in the market, it's likely he will not get many minutes next season and an exit would be advisable.

If Memphis does stay, Barça would like him to do so by accepting a new contract to avoid him leaving for free next summer. His idea is to stay because he is convinced he will get playing time.

Nothing is closed and the market will move things along now. There is a lot of movement in Memphis' position in the Premier League. Arsenal have asked about him but are moving for Gabriel Jesus first.
