Memphis Depay insists he wants to stay at Barcelona

Memphis Depay has knocked back suggestions that he could leave Barcelona this summer and is intent on fighting for his place in the side.

The Dutchman only signed for Barça last summer following the expiration of his contract at Lyon and although he scored 13 goals in 38 games in all competitions, he lost his place in Xavi’s lineup to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang following his winter arrival. He has since been linked with a move away from Camp Nou.

Barcelona remain interested in forwards Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha, while they are also trying to re-sign Ousmane Dembele after his contract ended.

Speaking to ESPN, Memphis revealed that he wants to ‘start again’ at Barcelona – right after he enjoys some downtime on his holidays.

“I really want to be back in Barcelona and start again, I can’t wait for that moment to come. I’m also going to relax with my feet in the sand somewhere before I go back to the club,” he said.
