Memphis Depay has been a different player since signing for Lyon and has regained the form which got him a big move to Manchester United. The Dutchman’s contract with the French side in June of 2022 and it was expected that the 26-year-old will be a Barcelona player before the deadline on October 5, 2020. However, Memphis seems optimistic about securing a move in the winter. 

I’m 26 and my transfer will cost next to nothing,’ the Olympique Lyon star player told BN DeStem on Saturday. ‘So we can expect that clubs will show an interest. It’ll be January soon. We’ll have to see how things are going. Not that I will definitely be leaving, but the possibility of clubs showing up soon is probably greater.’ He added.

The recent transfer speculations surrounding Memphis Depay has seen the Dutchman’s playing time being cut down in Rudi Garcia’s team and is eager to get his place back. But despite that has been among the goals, scoring four times in the opening six games.

‘What I found regrettable is that I’ve played a lot fewer minutes in Lyon in recent weeks. I felt it was all due to the fact that I was going to leave. As a forward, you want to continue this streak. I scored the first three of those goals in the first game. It’s a shame.’ Memphis Depay said further.
