18:05 h .: Koeman publicly asks Eric García and Depay

Ronald Koeman is clear about what he needs for his new project, so he does not hesitate to press as much as necessary. After insisting in recent days with the signing of a central defender ( Eric García ) and a striker ( Memphis Depay ), this Monday the Dutch public television (NOS) has issued statements by the Barça coach in which it reaffirms. Especially with the hiring of the Olympique de Lyon striker: “We want Depay to come to Barcelona, and he wants to come. But for that, one of our footballers should leave the team first.” Koeman refers to the departure of Ousmane Dembélé , who this Monday did not train with the rest of his teammates due to “indisposition”, according to the Barça entity.

The salary limit imposed by LaLiga prevents Barcelona from hiring Depay without one of the players with the best salary (in this case Dembélé) leaving the first team. Given the refusal of Manchester United to pay for the transfer of the French winger, Barça explores the possibility of a transfer in which the British club would take over the entire payment of the player's token.
