De Telegraaf: Memphis Depay to join Barcelona this week

Barcelona will complete the signing of Memphis Depay from Lyon this week, according to De Telegraaf.

The reliable Mike Verweij and Valentijn Driessen report that Barcelona have struck a deal for the Dutch attacker.

The Catalan club will pay €25m plus €5m at the end of the season, then a further €2m in bonuses.

Barca are already planning an official presentation for Depay and hope to confirm his signing this week.

It will mean a reunion for Depay with Ronald Koeman, who left his post as Netherlands coach to take over at Camp Nou.

Depay, 26, has been a star player in Ligue 1 since joining Lyon from Manchester United in January 2017.

In 140 appearances, Memphis has scored 57 goals and delivered 47 assists.

Barcelona turned to Depay after failing in their pursuit of Lautaro Martinez, who is now staying at Inter.
