Depay Completes €4m Move To Atletico Madrid From Barca


January 20, (THEWILL) – Memphis Depay has completed a transfer to Atletico Madrid from Barcelona.

The Netherlands international signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at the Civitas Metropolitano, with Atletico paying an upfront fee of €3 million to Barcelona, potentially rising to €4 million.

Depay joined Barcelona under Ronald Koeman on a free transfer from Lyon ahead of the 2021/2022 season, but struggled for playing time under new coach Xavi. With Joao Felix on loan at Chelsea and Matheus Cunha at Wolves, Depay is seen as a necessary addition for Atletico.

Despite losing their past two games, Atletico are currently fourth in La Liga and Depay could make his debut when they host Real Valladolid on Saturday.
