Memphis Depay has asked Barcelona to allow him to leave the club as a free agent in January, according to the Express (h/t Diario Sport
The 28-year-old has struggled for form and fitness this season making just three appearances so far. It’s a sharp contrast from a player who was Barca’s joint top scorer last term with 15 goals.
Depay already left Barcelona for Holland where he’s recovering from injury ahead of the World Cup.
The Dutchman’s contract with Barcelona runs until the summer of 2023. Thus, if Barca terminates his contract in January they stand to gain nothing from his exit while the player earns a handsome sign-on bonus from his next club.
