Memphis Depay has been talking about the possibility of moving to Barcelona when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Netherlands international missed out on a late move to the Camp Nou in the summer after Barca were preventing from bringing him for financial reasons.

The forward is still thought to be Ronald Koeman’s top target but does not seem certain he’ll be heading for Barca this winter.

“We will see,” he said. “Soon it will be January again. We’ll have to wait and see how things are.

“It’s not that I’m definitely going, but it’s likely there will be clubs in for me soon. I’m 26 and almost free, so you can expect clubs to be interested in me, no?”

Depay is into the final year of his contract at Lyon which means he could well attract more interest. Barca had reportedly agreed a fee of €5 million plus €10m in variables for the Dutchman before the move collapsed.
