Spanish giants, Barcelona, have succeeded in the move for free agent Memphis Depay on a two-year contract after running out of deal with Lyon.
The 27-year-old winger joins Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia who were both signed from Manchester City and Real Betis’ Emerson Royal to tighten the Camp Nou side this summer.
Catalan side were linked with Memphis last year and again in January,he has finally agreed to work under former Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman for the next two-years.
The announcement comes days after Ronald Koeman said that a deal was in the works, telling reporters : “It’s not signed yet, but it’s almost there.”
His comments were made hours after the former PSV and Manchester United player said that he wanted to play under Koeman again and suggested no other teams were in contention to sign him
The Netherlands international joined Lyon from Manchester United in 2017scoring 76 goals out of 178 appearances in all competitions over his four years with the French side.
His final season was his most prolific, however, as he netted 20 times in Ligue 1 to end up the joint-second top scorer behind Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, who got 27. Depay was top of the assist chart with 12.
Depay worked with Koeman for almost two years while the 58-year-old was in charge of Netherlands.
He was a crucial player as Netherlands improved following their unsuccessful Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup qualifying campaigns under Guus HIddink and Danny Blind.
Depay scored 11 times in the 18 matches he played under Koeman before the coach was lured to Barcelona last August.
