All the details and figures on the sale of Memphis Depay to Atlético
The ‘soap opera’ between Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona over Memphis Depay has come to an end. The Catalans have reached a halfway point in the negotiations with the rojiblanco team for the Dutchman, who will land at the Cívitas Metropolitano to reinforce ‘Cholo’ Simeone after the departure of Matheus Cunha and Joao Félix to the Premier.
In the absence of official confirmation from both clubs, The colchoneros have already agreed on all the details of the operation so that the attacker has a new start in LaLiga, where his objective is to feel like a footballer again and add the minutes he does not have under the management of Xavi Hernández.
The journalist from ‘Jijantes FC’, Gerard Romero, has revealed that Atlético will pay Barça three million fixed euros plus an additional one in variables to recruit the player. Added to it, they reserve a purchase option valued at 15 ‘kilos’ for this coming summer in case they wish to sign Yannick Carrasco, one of the names that has sounded so much as part of the movement.
On the other hand, the specialist in the transfer market, Fabrizio Romano, assures that Memphis is scheduled to travel to Madrid to pass all the relevant medical examinations so that his transfer becomes official in the next few hours. His contract will be for five seasons. until January 2028, a few days before he turns 33 years old.
At the end of it all, the Barça sports management was able to include a purchase option for Carrasco within the operation for the former Olympique Lyon. In the Barcelona offices they know that the economic situation will not allow them to invest millionaire sums in signings during the summer market, so setting the Belgian at 15 million euros is a complete success by Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff. Of course, it will be necessary to see in what conditions the winger arrives at the end of the season in contrast to some pieces of Barcelona, such as Ferran Torres or Raphinha.
