Memphis Depay is settling in well to life at FC Barcelona.

Some signings take longer to settle than others. Memphis, however, has already developed a good relationship with many members of the squad.

Many Barça players have been surprised at how non-conformist, ambitious and cheeky the Dutch forward has been so far in training - both with and without the ball. He has made an instant connection with the other players, who have quickly accepted him as one of the squad.

One of his closest friends in the dressing room is Netherlands team mate Frenkie de Jong, who he became close with on international duty.

A video of Memphis in one of his first sessions at the Joan Gamper Training Ground shows how well he is adapting to life at Barça. As players were warming up with a series of 'rondos' prior to the session, Memphis could be seen nutmegging Frenkie de Jong, a senior dressing room figure, twice on the bounce - much to the delight of everyone who witnessed it. By nutmegging him twice consecutively, Memphis showed that he doesn't care about established dressing room hierarchies, thus breaking one of football's unwritten rules. The reaction of his team mates shows that Memphis has been fully accepted as a member of the squad.
