Memphis Depay confirms Barcelona stay amid Chelsea links

Memphis Depay has revealed that he is staying at Barcelona, with the Netherlands international “fully committed” to helping the club in their bid for success.

The forward has been strongly linked with a move away from Camp Nou this summer, with Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea among the clubs to be credited with an interest.

A switch to Juventus broke down at the final moment, while neither Man United nor Chelsea are believed to have made firm offers for the attacker despite being linked with his services.

Memphis has taken to Twitter to reveal that he will not be leaving Barcelona before the transfer deadline.

I have decided to stay at Barça !
Fully committed to contribute to the club’s sporting success. 💙❤️ #ViscaBarca

The 28-year-old is yet to play a minute of football for Barcelona this season, sitting on the bench for the clashes with Rayo Vallecano, Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid.

Memphis scored 13 times in 38 appearances for the Catalan outfit last term following his arrival from Lyon in 2021.

The Dutchman only penned a two-year deal last summer, though, so he will be a free agent next June unless he pens a new deal with Xavi‘s side.

Memphis will now be looking to be involved in Barcelona’s next La Liga fixture against Sevilla on Saturday afternoon.
