While absent during the blaugranas’ trip to Ceuta for the 1/8 final of the King’s Cup, Xavi confirmed in conference the departure of a player.
Memphis Depay will officially leave FC Barcelona in the coming hours. The Dutch, who announced their departure for the past few weeks, joined Atletico Madrid yesterday, Thursday morning. Asked at a press conference after the meeting, Xavi himself revealed the transfer of the Dutchman to the Colchoneros, which was already no longer a secret for many people.
“Memphis asked to leave, and I don’t know if it’s official, but he’s going to Atlético.” “It wouldn’t be a tragedy either (not to replace him), but it’s better if we strengthen ourselves,” said coach Memphis Depay, who will join the Madrid club in the next few hours for a sum of 3 million euros.
