Barca Will Only Sign Man Utd Flop On One Condition

FC Barcelona are reportedly close to signing former Manchester United flop Memphis Depay, but will only do so on one condition.

The Catalan giants are keen to take Depay from Olympique Lyon to the Camp Nou, with new coach Ronald Koeman understood to be a huge fan of the player.

According to Marca, Barca have agreed a 25 million (R491 million) fee, plus another 5 million (R98 million) in add-ons, with the French club for the attacker.

However, as per Sport, the Blaugrana can only finalise the signing of Depay if they manage to get Luis Suarez off their wage bill.

The Uruguayan, who has been told he is not in the club's plans going forward, has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus, while Atletico Madrid are also said to be interested in his services.

It is understood, though, that Suarez does not want to give up on the wages he would earn in the final year of his Barca contract, while the LaLiga club has reportedly warned him that he will spend the whole 2020/21 season in the stands if he does not walk away.

Depay will seemingly have to wait a little while longer for the move to materialise, and will continue with Lyon for now.
