Football : A Catalan included in Operation Depay

Football :

Very interested in the services of OL striker Memphis Depay, Barça could include the young right-back Emerson in the operation.

Real priority of Ronald Koeman, the Dutch striker should be fixed on his future in the coming days. According to reports from the Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo, Catalan leaders are considering including right-back Emerson in the deal in order to lower the price of Memphis Depay. OL officials are said to ask for 30 million euros to part with the 26-year-old, a price too high for a Catalan management in great financial difficulty.

Emerson will strengthen the right lane

Loaned to Betis Seville until 2021, the Brazilian could be recalled to be sold to Olympique Lyonnais. After the departures of Rafael and Kenny Tete, Léo Dubois is the only right-back for Les Gones. If they accept FC Barcelona’s proposal, the leaders of the Rhone club could therefore solve a big defensive problem.
