Memphis Depay spoke about his future after scoring the opening goal in Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Real Mallorca at the Camp Nou.

There’s plenty of speculation flying about regarding Memphis and whether he will remain at Barcelona next season.

The Dutchman has made it pretty clear he is not interested in going anywhere and has no problem fighting for a place in the starting XI.

“I came here wanting to play for the team. I want to be important for the team next year and several more years,” he said.

“It’s normal that I have a lot of competition at Barçelona. I play for the best club in the world.”
