OL: Dembélé sold to Barça, the crazy rumor

Memphis Depay has expressed his desire to leave FC Barcelona and to replace him, the Blaugrana club could (again) draw on OL.

Very armed in attack with Raphinha, Ousmane Dembélé, Robert Lewandowski, Ferran Torres or Ansu Fati, FC Barcelona risks separating from Memphis Depay during the winter transfer window. Dissatisfied with his low playing time, the former Olympique Lyonnais striker has already expressed his desire to leave Barça to join a club in which he will be a leader, as was the case. at OL in the past. The current leader of La Liga will not oppose the departure of the Dutch international, six months from the end of his contract at FC Barcelona. Unless the situation changes, Memphis Depay should therefore no longer be a player of the Blaugrana club at the end of the winter transfer window. And according to information from Todo Fichajes, Xavi has targeted an OL striker to fill the probable departure of Memphis Depay.

Dembélé at Barça in the event of Depay’s departure?

The rumor may surprise more than one since the Spanish media affirms without batting an eyelid that FC Barcelona is very interested in the profile of Moussa Dembélé in order to make the former Celtic Glasgow striker Robert Lewandowski’s understudy in Catalonia . Indeed, Xavi believes that given the offensive armada at his disposal, it is useless to bet on a top European level striker, who would be expensive in transfer compensation and salary. The profile of Moussa Dembélé, a surface striker – like Lewandowski – thus appeals to Xavi, who does not forget that despite the criticism to which the Lyon striker is sometimes subjected, the latter has scored 21 goals in Ligue 1 this season. last in a team that did not qualify for the European Cup. FC Barcelona therefore smells the right thing with Dembélé who, like Memphis Depay, will be free of any contract at the end of the season and therefore available for a quite reasonable sum during the winter transfer window. This would be the second experience in Spain for Moussa Dembélé after his one-year loan to Atlético de Madrid two years ago.
