In what seems to be like a move waiting to happen in a matter of hours, FC Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has expressed his desires to see Dutch winger Memphis Depay sign for Barcelona.
The former Holland boss stressed that Barcelona are interested in signing him who is equally willing to sign for Barca and reunite with former boss at Barcelona.
Koeman, 57, who spoke to Dutch TV station NOS, said in an interview said;
“We want [Depay] to come to Barcelona and so does he,
He is an excellent player.
“He can play as a forward, but he also does a great job as a left winger.
“He has strength, holds the ball well, wins his duels and is very efficient.”
“When you have worked well with a player, you have clicked him and you think that this can also work here.”
However, Koeman who also expressed bringing him to Barcelona won’t be an easy task, explaining the reasons.
“It’s due to Barcelona’s financial situation,” Koeman noted.
“Especially due to the [Spanish Football] Federation’s controls.
“It is evident that one player must leave before another can come.”
