Atletico Madrid sign Memphis Depay

Atletico Madrid have signed Dutch international forward Memphis Depay from La Liga rivals Barcelona.

Following the departures of Matheus Cunha and Joao Felix to Wolves and Chelsea, respectively, the 28-year-old had emerged as a top target for Diego Simeone’s side.

Since the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, Depay has been denied playing time at the Camp Nou.

Both parties began negotiations for the former Manchester United forward last week, with the La Liga leaders demanding a fee of €7 million or the inclusion of Yannick Carrasco in the deal.

The Rojiblancos were, however, unwilling to agree to either condition, and it appeared at some point the deal was not going to pull through.

Ultimately, though, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona struck an agreement over a deal worth €3 million plus another €1 million in potential add-ons.

The 28-year-old completed his medicals in Madrid on Thursday and has signed a contract with the Colchoneros that runs until the summer of 2025.
