Juventus begin Barcelona talks for Depay

Memphis Depay of FC Barcelona celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the LaLiga Santander match between Elche CF and FC Barcelona at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero on March 06, 2022 in Elche, Spain.

Juventus have started ‘preliminary talks’ with Barcelona for Memphis Depay, claim ESPN, after suggestions the player had offered himself to the Bianconeri.

While the Old Lady is looking for reinforcements in attack and struggling to get a deal done for the return of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid, Barca have spent more than anyone this summer and need to get unwanted players off their wage bill.

Depay is one of them and it was reported yesterday that the Dutch international had offered himself to Juve.

Now ESPN suggest that negotiations have begun in earnest to see if all three can resolve their problems simultaneously.

The versatile 28-year-old striker could play either in place of Dusan Vlahovic or in support of the Serbian, giving Max Allegri the tactical options he is looking for.

Depay only joined Barcelona last summer as a free agent after leaving Olympique Lyonnais and his contract runs to June 2023.
