Newcastle United are reportedly focusing in on a transfer for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay. The Dutchman had a solid World Cup after returning from injury and a move away from Barcelona seems to be on the cards.
Despite looking really good for the Netherlands, Depay doesn’t seem to be in Xavi’s short or long-term plans for the club. This most likely means a winter exit for the Dutchman.
Newcastle United were one of several clubs reportedly interested in Depay over the summer, but a deal just wouldn’t come to fruition.
Depay hasn’t seemed to be all that eager to leave for a club in the Premier League, so Newcastle might be forced to flex their oil money to get him to budge.
