With this contract, Memphis becomes Barcelona’s fourth deal in the summer transfer market.

The Dutchman is joining the club on a free transfer. The 27-year-old has been linked with news of a move to Juventus. However, he decided to choose to play for Barcelona.
The contract with Memphis came at the request of his former coach, Ronald Koeman. In fact, Koeman tried to sign the player in the last summer transfer window. However, it happened in the current summer window.
Depay participated with Lyon in the last season in 40 games, in which he scored 22 goals and gave 12 assists.
Barcelona officially signed Memphis and Aguero after suffering in scoring last season. This cost the team a lot of points.
Griezmann did not replace the Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez in the scoring mission.
