Memphis Depay is confident to stay at Lyon

Memphis Depay has poured rumours of a January move to Barcelona with cold water. The Lyon forward has said he will remain with the French team until the last day of his contract – which expires in the summer – and appears to be more willing to negotiate with Barcelona at a time when there is more confidence. “I’m focused on what I’m doing with Lyon,” he said. “I don’t want to make a decision yet, because I feel good here. I don’t want to create a mess. We have a good team, and I like the president, we’ll see what happens. But the President and I know what has happened in the last four seasons. We will continue to enjoy things as they are for the rest of the season.”

“I only think about Saturday’s game. That’s all I’m going to say.” Despite the uncertainty, Depay continued his excellent form with the team, scoring a double on Wednesday night against Lens in Ligue 1. Depay almost moved to Barcelona last summer, but given his comments and Barcelona’s financial instability, a transfer looks less likely than ever – at least not yet.
