Barca and Depay agree terms; Juninho opens exit door
The 'Sky Sport' journalist specialised in transfers, Fabrizio Romano, informed on Wednesday that Depay has now reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign.
Contact, the source explains, started a few days back. Days before the start of the season, Barcelona want to complete their first signing.
However, first, they will have to reach an agreement with Lyon. The French side know that it'll be very difficult for them to retain the Dutchman, so they will look for a good figure.
Juninho Pernambucano, the French side's sporting director, assured that there still hasn't been a formal offer from Barcelona to undertake the signing of Depay.
"When a 26-year-old player has only one year on his contract left and Barça follow him... Memphis is in a strong position", Juninho assured on 'RMC Sports'.
Juninho cleared up that "if an offer comes", Lyon will have to study it. And it is hard to say "no" to Barcelona in a moment when the Spaniards are looking for a forward.
"Before his serious injury, he received an offer from president Aulas to extend his contract, but he wanted to take some time", Juninho acknowledged about Depay.
The player himself confirmed days ago the interest that Barcelona had in signing him. Now, according to the aforementioned source, the agreement has already reportedly happened.
