Memphis Depay joins Barcelona on a two-year deal

Barcelona have officially confirmed the signing of Netherlands international Memphis Depay.

Depay has been linked with a move to Barcelona ever since Ronald Koeman took charge of the club last year.

A move last summer broke down, while the Netherlands international didn’t want to leave Lyon mid-season.

Now that Memphis is a free agent the deal has been confirmed with the 27-year-old signing a two-year deal at the Nou Camp.
