Barcelona – Real. The last “El Clasico” by Memphis? It may go away

You have to admit that Memphis Depay in recent months he has settled in for good in the top eleven FC Barcelona. The player this season has scored eight goals so far and was an “iron choice” for the “Blaugrana” team, often playing the full 90 minutes in consecutive meetings of the Catalan team. Recently, however, his situation has gotten a bit complicated.

First of all, the Dutchman contracted a thigh contusion, which effectively excluded him from the last few matches. He returned to the game for a 30-minute league match against Granada, but in the coming weeks he may have trouble returning to the former regularity in appearances. Ferran Torres from Manchester City joined FCB, and this may slightly change the appearance of Barcelona’s offensive formation.

In this connection, the theme of Depay leaving Catalonia returns. According to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, he would be willing to receive his services Juventuswho, due to a serious injury to Federico Chiesa (torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee), is slightly against the wall and has to be flexible about building his squad until the end of the season.

It would be possible to borrow a Dutch footballer. He would go the other way Alvaro Morata, which of course would require appropriate negotiations with Atletico Madrid – the player for the “Old Lady” is on loan from this club. FCB, however, is determined to win over this player.

Juve also considered transferring Iranian Sardar Azmoun from Zenit Saint Petersburg, but now it seems more likely to “pull” Memphis out of Spain. The key decisions – according to the “Sport” daily – are to be made after today’s Italian Super Cup final, in which Juventus is facing Inter Milan. Therefore, the operation would be finalized in January.

Meanwhile, a meeting will also be held in Saudi Arabia today FC Barcelona – Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup. For Memphis Depay, this may be the last “El Clasico“for a long time, if not forever. A Juventus loan can easily turn into a permanent contract and a player could end his adventure at Camp Nou after only half the season. Clash with Real Anyway, he will start on the bench …
