Moussa Dembélé's transfer to Atletico would take Depay away from Barca

If Moussa Dembélé signs with Atletico Madrid, Olympique Lyon will lose a striker for the second leg of the season, making the possibility of Memphis Depay signing for Barcelona in this winter market more distant.

If Moussa Dembélé goes to Atlético, there will be fewer options for Depay to sign with Barcelona. This is the conclusion reached by the newspaper 'AS' when reviewing Rudi Garcia's squad, which, if first of these operations is confirmed, will be left with few strikers.

It was therefore not in his best interests to send the Dutchman to Barcelona. The option of incorporating this winter market to shore up Ronald Koeman's scheme, with a Griezmann down and a Braithwaite struggling to assert himself, was on the table.

If his team-mate dresses in red and white for the rest of the season - most likely on loan - it will be even clearer to Olympique Lyon that Memphis must stay at least until the end of the season or they will have to sign up to avoid being left without any players at the top.

In fact, the 'gones' have already chosen the possible replacement of Moussa Dembele: Slimani. This forward of the Leicester City will be the new companion of Depay if the departure of the Frenchman to Spain is confirmed.
