Juventus are ready to move for Memphis Depay, as soon as the Dutch forward reaches an agreement with Barcelona over the proposed termination of his contract, according to Fabrizio Romano.
With Barcelona keen to cut down their wage bill in order to comply with La Liga’s Financial Fair Play rules and make room for further signings, Depay is one of the player being forced out. The negotiations between the representatives of the player and the relevant people at the club are ongoing at the moment.
Juventus have, meanwhile, lost Paulo Dybala who has joined AS Roma as a free agent, a year after Cristiano Ronaldo left for Manchester United and six months after Dejan Kulusevski moved to Tottenham Hotspur. With their need for attacking reinforcements clear, they’ve apparently prepared a two-year contract for Depay, worth around €6.5 million per season, add-ons included.
The 80-cap Netherlands international has scored 13 goals and provided two assists in 37 matches in all competitions for Barcelona since he joined as a free agent from Olympique Lyon last year.
