Memphis Depay (28 years) scored his first goal in the World Cup in Qatar to lead the Netherlands to victory in the round of 16 over the United States (3-1), but the situation of the striker with his country is completely different from his situation in Barcelona, and there could be a change in the scene in the next winter market.
The Memphis muscle injury barely allowed him to participate in three matches since the start of the current season with Barcelona, and he scored one goal, and we must remember that his contract expires at the end of the season, so Barcelona will not hesitate to leave the striker to be able to obtain some margin in “fair play.” , either through the sale or providing the salary of the Dutchman.
In this scenario, and as reported by the Italian newspaper “Totosport”, Jose Mourinho is very interested in contracting with Memphis Depay in January, and strengthening the Roma attack will be his top priority.
The aforementioned information adds that Jose Mourinho had already contacted Memphis to try to convince him to accept the Roma offer.
Roma do not want to pay a large sum for Depay’s services, as they can get him for free starting next season, and for this reason they can request to have him in the form of a loan so that they do not have to pay a transfer and only pay his relatively large salary.
Should the loan deal close, Roma’s idea is to offer him a long-term contract after this season, which could be attractive for Memphis to start a new professional adventure.
