Memphis Depay is the new star at Barcelona. The Dutchman arrived to a bit of fanfare given Barcelona’s otherwise depressing offseason.

He chatted a bit with the press this week about his short time at the club and specifically about pairing up with Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero.

“There are lots of attackers in the squad, but I think we all offer something different. My skills and strong points are different to those of Agüero, for example, or any other attacker. I think that the three of us all bring something different to the table and we would be able to play together, but let’s see what side the manager picks.”

There’s no question the trio will be a devastating attack. However, talent hasn’t been Barcelona’s biggest problem in the past, it’s been the parts working together. Hopefully, the three of them are able to work together efficiently.
