Dutch footballer Memphis Depay, who had been the target of Spanish club Barcelona, could join the club on Monday. Lyon's sporting director Juninho confirmed the news and revealed that the former Manchester United forward has agreed on personal terms with the Spanish giant.
The former Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman who recently took on Barcelona had been trying to pursue the attacker and reunite at Camp Nou. His desire finally seems to have been fulfilled as Juninho admitted Demay's transfer being on edge.
"Memphis? He is in his last year of the contract. He agreed with Barca. Maybe he will leave tomorrow, but nothing is certain. He's most likely to leave, but if he stays I hope he will help us win the matches."
Juninho told Telefoot on Sunday.
"Jeff and Depay, they're two different cases. Jeff, we never thought about parting with him. You have to ask him the question. He didn't agree with Hertha [Berlin]. If he stays with us, I hope he has the personality to react on the pitch. If he agrees with them, he will leave, otherwise, he stays."
He also revealed that the club is trying to close a deal with Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio.
