If Barcelona missed out on Wijnaldum, they can’t let the same happen with Depay. Juventus are aware of the club’s economic problems and have offered Depay more money than the Catalan side. The ball is in the court of the player.
Ronald Koeman has spent months asking Depay to join Barcelona and now it seems how could be on his way elsewhere. Nothing is decided just yet, but Juventus have serious intentions about signing the Lyon player.
The Dutchman wants to join the Catalan side, as he knows his compatriot and manager Koeman wants him there, although he still hasn’t ruled out the other tempting offer that he has on the table.
This comes from Turin in the form of Juventus, who are well aware of the economic situation of Barcelona. For this reason, according to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, they have offered him a lot more money to win the race for his signature.
Those at the ‘Vecchia Signora’ have made an offer of three million euros a season, a move to which Barca won’t respond as they simply can’t afford it. For their part, those at the Camp Nou have offered Depay one more year on his contract to demonstrate their interest in the player.
At the moment, everything has come to a halt. The ball is in Depay’s court and it will be he who has the last word. He faces a choice between more money or playing under a manager who truly wants him in Koeman, and for potentially a year longer.
