Once the main European leagues finish this weekend, the ‘mercato’ dance will begin with foreseeable prominence for the players whose contracts expire at the end of the season. Free to negotiate your future from the beginning of the year, resolve your future before the Eurocup it is a priority for them. And besides Eric
Garcia Y Sergio
OmenWith everything ready to become new Barça footballers, two Dutchmen could continue together after the final phase. Memphis
Depay He was already three weeks ago in Barcelona looking for a house in the Pedralbes area, as MD revealed, and Georginio
Wijnaldum He is another footballer who has been very fond of since last summer.
However, despite being Dutch and requests for Ronald
Koeman In his day, the decision on the possible incorporation of both at zero cost does not necessarily depend on the continuity of the hero of Wembley on the bench, which will be resolved one way or another next week.
Barça seeks to have more goals and players with more experience and that profile fits perfectly Depay (27 years old), who has 20 goals in the current edition of Ligue 1 with the jersey of Olympique Lyon waiting for the last day next Sunday. Its arrival at zero cost is also a determining factor in not letting this opportunity slip away due to the possibility of a crack like Antoine
Griezmann could go. MD already reported yesterday that the club does not rule out his transfer by not considering him untouchable or essential. His versatility is another factor that works in his favor in a market with few forwards of his level for such low cost when only the salary is counted and not very high on the other hand.
As to Wijnaldum (30 years), in the club, regardless of whether it continues Koeman or not, it is planned to go for a touring midfielder and expert like the Dutch international of the Liverpool, that on Sunday he will play his last game with the ‘reds’ against him Crystal
Palace in order to seal the pass for the Champions
League. There are not many players of his level and experience in the market either, although in his case the decision is not as on track as with Depay, which has prioritized the offer of Barça before other better than Juventus, Inter or Athletic. Wijnaldum charge more in the Premier what Memphis in Ligue 1 and his salary can be a handicap that generates a certain debate in the Barça club while waiting to make the final decision on his signing.
The Dutch midfielder, who was a starter with Koeman in the national team, it is also on the agenda of clubs such as Rome, with Joseph
Mourinho as a promoter, Inter, Bayern
Munich Y Paris Saint-
Germain. The Gazzetta dello Sport reported that he is asking for a three- or four-year contract at a rate of more than four million each. The professionalism of Wijnaldum is one of its great endorsements. Despite the fact that months ago he announced internally to Liverpool that he would not renew, Jurgen
Klopp He has lined up him in 36 league games, proof of his commitment until the last day.
The call for the Eurocup, on Friday
The Dutch list will be announced next Friday (12:45 pm). Frank
by Boer will also summon the azulgrana Frenkie de Jong and the expedition will depart on Saturday 29 to Lagos (Portugal) to do a small ‘stage’ before debuting on June 13 against Ukraine on Amsterdam, which will host the following matches against Austria Y North macedonia. Therefore, before starting the preparation ‘oranje’ there could be firm news about the future of Depay Y Wijnaldum.
