Barcelona is already thinking about next season. Joan Laporta is working hard this summer to close the signings requested by Ronald Koeman to reinforce the team. The Dutchman already has Sergio Agüero, Eric García and Emereson Roya. However, they will not be the only ones.

Memphis Depay, star of Olympique de Lyon, will finish sealing their bond in the coming days. The forward confirmed this Thursday that he will be part of the Barça team at the Euro 2021 press conference before the Netherlands vs. Austria. "Everyone knows that I have been in contact with Barça for a long time, and I would like to play for Ronald Koeman," he said. "Still a little patience and the information will come," Depay added on the eve of the match against Austria in Amsterdam.

After the announcement of Depay, Ronald Koeman spoke of the possibility of signing him in an act that Groningen organized as a tribute to his father. To everyone's surprise, he validated the attacker's words. “Memphis has said something about its future and I can confirm it. As far as I know, it is well on its way. Not signed yet, but almost. I wanted to get it in January and if he comes now, it's great for us”, said the Barza coach.

Koeman was also asked about Wijnaldum's arrival. Several national media pointed out that he was about to leave Liverpool to land in Barcelona, but an offer from PSG changed his plans in the transfer market. “I spoke with Gini about his signing and he, in the end, made a decision. It had to do with the situation at Barcelona ”, he declared regarding the new Paris Saint Germain footballer.
