Barcelona Show Plans To Appease Lionel Messi Which Involves Signing

Lionel Messi has reportedly resumed training with Barcelona and the Nou Camp outfit have concluded plans to appease the captain.

The Catalans have agreed a fee with Lyon to sign Memphis Depay.

Depay could be a replacement for Luis Suarez, who has been linked with a move to Juventus.

The Netherlands striker has revived his career since joining Lyon for £15million from Manchester United in January 2017.

Now, he is a target for Barcelona, who are bossed by his former Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman.

Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia claim Lyon have accepted a £22m (€25m) bid from Lyon for Depay.

He scored 15 goals in all competitions as Lyon impressively made it to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

Lyon boss Rudi Garcia has insisted he will not attempt to block Depay’s transfer to Barcelona.

Depay started the new 2020/21 campaign in prolific fashion when he netted a hat-trick in Lyon’s opening day 4-1 win over Dijon.
