Barcelona and Memphis Depay, a tale as old as the second Ronald Koeman was hired as manager. Surely, this summer will bring the end to all the speculation and wonder surrounding his future, right?

Well, not if Lyon has anything to say about it. Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas spoke about the possibility of Depay signing a new deal with Lyon amidst all the Barca chatter.

“Until the end we believe that he will renew for next season. Right now it is not something that is possible but why not? He is a great talent, world class. There are not many like him in the team.

He brings solutions. I always wanted him to remain but our offers did not convince him. We helped him go to FC Barcelona but financially it was not possible.”
