Almost every club in the world is trying to look for players who could be signed as free agents or for a low fee, as the COVID-19 pandemic left them in a complicated financial situation. One of the most emblematic cases of the clubs going that way is FC Barcelona, that already had some economic problems and has more now after the crisis.

As they are such a top club, they are always thinking on signings, even though those of this year were expected to arrive for free. The attacker that Barça is looking forward to sign since a couple of months ago, to accompany Lionel Messi, is Memphis Depay.

The Dutch forward aged 26 is one of the most wanted players from the world, as he is in a very good form and his contract with Olympique Lyon ends on June 2021. That means that he can already negotiate to leave as a free agent on half of the year. Another option is to purchase him for a little amount of money as the one that the French side is asking for ($5 million).

But when the negotiation seemed to be advanced for Barcelona, Juventus are now on their way and try to convince the attacker to move with them. From playing with Messi, Depay could now go to play with Cristiano Ronaldo. The attacker has passed through Lyon, Manchester United and PSV Eindhoven, during his career.
