Atlético de Madrid: Memphis, very close to Atlético
A one step. This is the signing of Memphis Depay for Atlético. The Bara striker has become the great rojiblanco target and the negotiations are advancing at a fast pace. So much so that it could be closed in the next few days.
The tip of the Netherlands wins the race among the various options that Atlético managed after the transfer of joao flix. The loan of the Portuguese changed the pace in the acquisition of Borja Iglesias (the rojiblancos cannot undertake a transfer) and the option of a solution until June 30 gained strength.
Ah I appeared Memphison the exit ramp of a Bara who has been wanting to get rid of the player for a long time due to the high competition in the attacking positions. In addition, his contract ends in June and is the best option to get some money for his transfer. Besides, of course, the payroll savings.
Experience in LaLiga and good relations
Two other key factors have been Memphis’ experience in the Spanish championship, so it won’t have to adapt and its performance will be immediate. Also the good relations between Atlético and Barawho have done business in recent times with Luis Surez Y griezmann. Memphis, as things are, points to the third striker who has taken the airlift in recent times.
His best numbers, in Lyon
The Barca striker, who has scored a goal this season and twelve last season, had his best goalscoring record in Ligue 1 with Lyon (76 goals in 178 games). After having shone in the Eredivise enrolled in the ranks of the PSV (50 goals in 124 games), his time at the Manchester Utd (7 goals in 53 games) was not what was expected. If he arrives at the rojiblanco team, he will seek to recover the best version of him.
