He's not a pure No 9 though, says the legendary Bayern Munich striker

Roy Makaay banged in 314 goals in a successful career, playing for Vitesse, Tenerife, Deportivo, Bayern and Feyenoord. He was a well known striker in the 90s and 00s. So, a good person to analyse the potential arrival of Memphis Depay at Barcelona, the forward Ronald Koeman wants.

"Depay is a very good player, although I don't see him at the level yet that he had before he was injured," said Makaay on Radio Marca. "He's not a pure nine but if he goes to Barca I'm sure he'll be important because he's got a lot of quality."

Makaay also praised Ronald Koeman for the work he's doing with Ansu Fati and Pedri. "I love Ansu Fati, he's showing he's got a really high level for an 18 year old kid. I also like Pedri, I didn't know him and if you like football you'll like to see him play. Koeman's showing he'll give the young players a chance."
