Newcastle United Transfer News: According to reports, Newcastle United is prepared to give Barcelona twenty million euros to get Memphis Depay as a player
Newcastle United Transfer News: The publication SPORT claims that Newcastle United might provide Memphis Depay with an exit strategy from Barcelona. The out-of-favour Dutch striker is drawing attention from many Premier League teams, including Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, who are also said to be considering making an offer of twenty million euros to join with the Magpies, who are rumored to be interested in signing him for their club.
After seeing out the last year of his contract with Lyon, the Dutchman made the switch to Barcelona as a free agent during the summer of 2021 and was expected to spearhead their attack for the remainder of the season. Despite the fact that the early indications were positive, the signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres moved Memphis Depay farther down the depth chart.
This summer, the Blaugrana have strengthened their roster by acquiring Ousmane Dembele on a new contract, in addition to bringing in Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich and Raphina from Leeds United. These new signings at Barcelona will further reduce the amount of playing time that Depay receives, and as a result, he is keen to finalize a transfer away from Camp Nou.
The 28-year-old player still has one year left on his contract with Barcelona, but the Catalan club has placed a price tag of €20 million on him in the event that they decide to sell him. There has been recent interest from Tottenham in acquiring the services of Depay, but current reports indicate that the attacker has rejected their offer and is not in a rush to join a new club.
Depay is interested in investigating his other opportunities and anticipates becoming one of the key players on a team that competes for championships on numerous fronts. Newcastle United, who have been given a boost by the arrival of new owners and are planning a summer reconstruction, have suddenly entered the competition for his signature and are willing to fulfill Barcelona’s demands in order to get his services.
What is in store in Depay’s Future?
However, the former Manchester United striker has previously rejected Spurs’ overtures, and it seems unlikely that Newcastle could provide him with a greater opportunity to win trophies than would be provided by Tottenham. As a consequence of this, it is quite possible that the Barcelona player will choose not to sign with Newcastle as well.
Manchester United, Depay’s old club, has also lately been mentioned in connection with a possible transfer for the player. However, Barcelona is said to be ignorant of any interest on the part of the Red Devils. The heavyweights of the Premier League are looking to add an attacker, and there have been recent reports that they are interested in Ajax’s Antony. Even if Newcastle is prepared to spend €20 million to get Depay, it is quite doubtful that the club would sign him despite their interest in the player.
