In a press conference from the Netherlands camp, Memphis Depay appeared completely unconcerned regarding the interest from Barcelona, PSG and Juventus in signing him. He is only focused on the ‘Oranje’ at the moment, before their Euros opener against Ukraine.
Dutch forward Memphis Depay, whose contract at Lyon terminates at the end of the month, said that the rumours regarding a possible move to either Barcelona, PSG or Juventus don’t bother him.
“I’m not worried about that at all. At the moment, I only have in my mind the first game against Ukraine on Sunday”, the player responded, whilst in a press conference with the Dutch national team.
When asked if he had spoken with his teammates about where he will play his football next season, he indicated that he’s not someone “who speaks about this a lot in group of players”.
Depay has started the last seven matches for the Netherlands, scoring six goals and providing three assists. His striker partner in the last two encounters has been Wolfsburg forward Wout Weghorst, who looks likely to be in Frank De Boer’s first starting line up for the Euros.
Both forwards tried to “link up and connect” in the last friendly against Georgia, Depay said, who stated that Weghorst “is a good kid” with whom he has “clicked personally”.
The starting place for the Wolfsburg striker will probably come at the expense of Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong, who Depay played with at PSV Eindhoven.
“Luuk is also a striker that holds up the ball well, and you can play with. I get on well with both Wout and Luuk, I want to make that clear. Both have different qualities”, the still Lyon player concluded.
