Memphis Depay not willing to accept Barca releasing him

The player wants to stay at the club unless the right offer arrives for him in January

Barcelona would look kindly on Memphis Depay leaving in January but it won’t be easy. They are willing to let him go for nothing but he wants to stay and earn the rest of his salary. Memphis would only accept an exit to a Champions League club, where he could have a key role. Otherwise he will wait until June.

Memphis and his people were hard to negotiate with in the summer and they decided to stay, with Juventus unable to afford their demands. Once Aubameyang left for Chelsea, Memphis was content to remain in Barcelona. If he has a good World Cup, there might be more offers for him.

The Dutchman knows that Barcelona have doubted his professionalism during his recovery from injury and he is annoyed about that.

He will be ready for Qatar but has not been able to play for weeks for Barca.

If Barcelona want him to leave then it will depend on his will to go. In England they say Man United are interested but Barca have not heard from them. The coming weeks will be key to his future…
