Chelsea register late interest in Barcelona’s Memphis Depay?

Barcelona attacker Memphis Depay could supposedly still complete a deadline-day transfer to Chelsea in the coming hours.

The former Manchester United and Lyon man enjoyed an electric start to life at Camp Nou before falling down the pecking order in the second half of the 2021-22 season.

With Robert Lewandowski now cementing himself as Xavi‘s first-choice centre-forward, Depay has been linked with an exit from La Blaugrana all summer long.

The 28-year-old’s chances of sealing a move away have slimmed down dramatically, but according to Gerard Romero – via – Chelsea still hold an interest.

Barcelona were supposedly informed of Depay’s desire to leave the club earlier this week, and the player’s entourage are working on a last-minute solution with the Catalan club, who could lose the attacker on a free transfer in 2023.

The Netherlands international has not played a single minute of La Liga football for Barcelona so far this season and ended his debut season with 13 goals and two assists from 38 games in all tournaments.

Chelsea are already set to sign one Barcelona attacker on deadline day, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang now back in London ahead of his switch to Stamford Bridge on an initial two-year deal.
