Memphis is going to leave Barça, although the player’s entourage are tightening the conditions in the negotiations that are being held, especially with Juventus. The Dutch striker is only considering a move to a top club and is in no great hurry.
He is asking for very high salary conditions to recover the effort he made to come to the Blaugrana club and, for now, there is no agreement with Juventus.
The Italian club was willing to pay a transfer fee to respect Barça, but the striker prefers to leave on a free transfer to earn more on his arrival at calcio.
Barça’s first proposal was to renew Memphis for one season and to arrange a loan with Juve with a compulsory option to buy in 2023 for around 20 million euros.
The Italians did not see the operation as a bad idea, but in talks with the player’s entourage it is becoming clear to them that the Dutchman could leave for free or at a very low price this summer.
They are negotiating with three parties, but Memphis has already made it clear that he wants a high salary to accept and it seems that this will not be acceptable if a transfer is also involved.
In the blaugrana club are pressing to reach a three-way agreement and will lower their demands so that everything can be squared, but it will not be easy. The player’s entourage are also in contact with other clubs and are waiting for answers.
They believe that there could be an option to join Chelsea after the departure of Timo Werner and they are going to hurry their market options despite the fact that Barça need to free up numbers now to avoid registration problems.
Both Barça and the intermediaries who have brought in Juve are pushing for everything to be ready this week, but it is complicated.
