Newcastle joined the fight for Europe this season, and in order to succeed in that, reinforcements are necessary. Memphis Depay has been moved to the Barcelona bench, which the Premier League wants to take advantage of.
The Dutch footballer lost the trust of Xavi Hernandez and played only two matches in Primera this season.
This was a surprising move for many if we consider that the Dutch representative had an excellent first season at Camp Nou.
Depay was one of the best dutch players at the World Cup in Qatar, which attracted the attention of the richest club in the world.
Eddie Howe and the team are playing very well this year and are currently third in the Premier League.
It’s no secret that Newcastle wants to build a team that will be competitive with the biggest European names, therefore Depay emerged as one of the wishes in the attack.
Barca has been in financial problems for a long time and is in the mood for negotiations, especially if we consider that the experienced striker’s contract expires in six months and that this is the last chance to earn money from the transfer.
Do you think Depay will move to Newcastle?
