The Dutch forward wants to relaunch his career away from Camp Nou after the World Cup

Memphis Depay may have played his last game in a Barça shirt. The Dutch player has not played since September due to injury and will reappear at the World Cup for Netherlands, although it seems he won't return to Barcelona after.

According to 'The Express', the striker has already asked to leave Camp Nou this winter as a free agent with just six months to run on his contract. Memphis was close to leaving in the summer but Aubameyang's departure stopped him from departing, although his situation at Barça has not improved.

The Dutchman would like to terminate his contract to choose his own destination in a formula similar to that of the summer when his move to Juventus fell through. In England, there is already talk that Manchester United and Tottenham are very attentive to his future and would make a bid as long as the footballer left for free. At Barça, they are also open to letting him go to free up salary space in January.

Memphis came to Barça under Ronaldo Koeman, but the arrival of Xavi Hernández and the attacking signings last summer have left him with few opportunities in the starting eleven. This season, the Blaugrana informed him that he was allowed to leave and he negotiated with Juventus but everything brok due to his economic demands. Now it seems that the player is clear that he has to relaunch his career away from Barcelona and cannot wait until June. The World Cup will be a showcase and could bring in succulent offers if he performs well with the Netherlands. In theory, he will be a starter if fit.

In recent weeks, there has been some controversy with Memphis due to the club's discomfort around his recovery. He has not played a single game since the last international break and will be prepared for the World Cup in the best condition. Memphis exploded on social media to defend his professionalism, but the reality is that Barça do not count on him and will try to save some of his salary between now and the end of the season
