According to another newspaper, Marca, FC Barcelona has reportedly reached an agreement with Memphis Depay for the Dutchman to join the club next season. However, the deal would only be signed if Ronald Koeman remains in the Barcelona dugout.
This is a deal that has been in the pipeline since Koeman took over as Barcelona coach. Because Memphis Depay was always in Koeman’s sights.
The Dutch Olympique Lyonnais player has a contract until 2022, but he is eager to meet with his former Dutch coach. According to Marca, Depay would have made it very easy to reach a satisfactory agreement to fulfill his desire to play for Barça. He is even willing to lose money in order to make it possible.
Barcelona would be fulfilling their coach’s wishes. However, things could change if Koeman does not stay at the club next season.
Ronald Koeman’s future
Ronald Koeman’s future at FC Barcelona is currently hanging by a thread right now. The Dutch coach is in a very weak position after losing the chance to win La Liga this season. Consequently, FC Barcelona is considering the coach’s situation. And there is a possibility that he will not stay with the club.
In this case, one of the names being considered to replace him is Xavi Hernández. The ex Barcelona player has just renewed his contract with the Qatari team Al Sadd. But a clause in the contract would allow him to leave the team in case Barcelona would want to hire him.
Other names for the position include Jürgen Klopp, Thierry Henry, and Jordi Cruyff.
