Juventus and Barcelona are exploring several options, including a loan with an obligation to purchase, to make the Memphis Depay deal work. The striker, whose contract with the Blaugrana expires in June 2023, joined the team as a free agent last summer. However, with the influx of attackers this season, it seems unlikely that he will see any action.
Versatility is essential because the Bianconeri are looking for a forward who can either partner with Dusan Vlahovic or take his place. Juventus is one of the teams vying to recruit Depay, according to sources close to Barcelona.
Finding a deal that works for everyone would be difficult, but one possibility is for the Dutch international to extend his term with Barcelona through June 2024 and then sign a loan agreement with Juventus with a €20 million buyout clause in the summer of 2023. Other clubs interested in Depay include Manchester United, Olympique Lyonnais, Tottenham, Newcastle United and PSG, but Juventus remain the favourites.
