Barcelona is not what it used to be The Catalan giant is in big financial problems. After winter they changed the management and all that affected their game. Although they had the opportunity to reach and overtake Atletico Madrid on several occasions, the players led by Ronald Koeman did not manage to reach the title.
The last one was won in 2019 in the Primera, and their last Champion League trophy was won in 2015. Not enough for the expectations of a club like Barcelona. They hope at the Nou Camp that this could change soon, as much as next season.
Despite the turbulent releases, we continued to trust the Dutch coach, who will have several very promising players at his disposal, who are expected to quickly become the team's leaders (Pedri, Fati, Dest, Araujo, Mingueza, Puig, Trincao) The biggest success is Messi's decision to stay in the club, and the existing playing staff is strengthened by the experience of Sergio Aguero and the potential of Eric Garcia.
Manchester City tandem arrived for free, without compensation. It was expected that the Dutch, Georginio Wijandlum from Liverpool, and Memphis Depay from Lyon, would join them at the same time, but the circumstances suddenly changed.
Paris Saint-Germain took advantage of the bad financial situation of the Catalans and joined the race to sign Wijnaldum at the last moment, offering much better conditions. Although there is no official confirmation yet, everything indicates that the great midfielder will continue his career in Paris.
That, however, does not seem to be the only shock for the management and fans of the Blaugrana. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona could be left without Depay's signature, since Juventus is allegedly willing to bring him 3,000,000 euros more per season than the Catalans offer, although the specific salary figure is not stated.
The leading player of the Dutch selection had 2,300,000 per season in Lyon, and according to earlier information, he agreed with Barca for lower incomes than in the French club. Allegedly, he has already chosen a house in a Spanish city ...
Whether Depay will play at the Camp Nou and fulfill what he wanted, or he will still go to Turin, we will find out after the European Championship Allegedly, the Catalans, in response to Juventus' offer, offer a one-year longer contract, ie three seasons fixed and one optional.
Depay will focus on the European Championship in which he wants to reach the trophy, and after the end he will think about his destiny
