Agreement for the transfer of Memphis with Atlético Madrid
The agreement includes a preferential but not compulsory purchase option for the player Yannick Carrasco
FC Barcelona and Club Atlético de Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Memphis Depay for the fee of 3 million euros plus one million in variables. The agreement includes a preferential but not compulsory purchase option for the player Yannick Carrasco.
FC Barcelona would like to publicly thank Memphis for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future.
FC Barcelona first announced Memphis was joining the Club during the European Championships in summer 2021. The Dutch forward was 27 years old at the time, arriving on a free transfer after five seasons at Olympique Lyonnais.
14 goals for the Club
In his first few months in Barcelona, Memphis quickly won the Spotify Camp Nou crowd over. His goals made him both the reference in attack and a goalscorer.
However, the Netherlands international experienced injury issues that prevented a run in the team, before the Club bolstered its forward options with signings in the winter transfer window during the 21/22 season. Memphis continued to help the team with his goals, however.
Including this season's matches, Memphis scored 14 goals and provided 2 assists in 42 appearances while wearing the Barça jersey.
Second-highest goalscorer for the Netherlands
While at Barça, Memphis became the second-highest goalscorer for his country's national side, scoring his 42nd goal in the famous orange jersey and drawing level with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. He now has 43 goals and is only 7 shy of Robin van Persie, the Netherlands' all-time leading goalscorer.
