FC Barcelona are going through a very strange moment in their history. The club has lost its president Josep María Bartomeu after a fight with Lionel Messi that may end in the departure of the Argentinian legend as well. Everything occurred in the context of a financial crisis.

Barcelona's debts more than $800 million and the problem is far away from being solved. The club reduced the salary of both players and employees but that was just the first action implemented. What’s next is ending the incredible amount of money wasted on signings, such as the one of Ousmane Dembélé, Antoine Griezmann and so.

One of the players who could arrive for free the next transfer window is Memphis Depay. The Dutch attacker will end his contract with Olympique Lyon on June 2021 and was tempted by Barcelona to join. The player has been in talks to arrange his contract, but things may change at the end.

Depay is now also pretended by both Juventus and AS Roma Serie A sides. The two Italian teams consider, as well as Barcelona, that his signing for free would be perfect in such a moment. When it seemed to be that he was going to be Lionel Messi companion, now things may change and Depay may be leaving to another team.
