Memphis Depay is not a stranger to Ronald Koeman as he has coached the 26-year-old at the Holland national senior football team.

Depay is set to travel to Barcelona in the coming days to complete a medical and it is hoped he will be presented as a new player at the Nou Camp before first game of the season.

He joined French side Lyon in January 2017 after a disastrous spell at Premier League side Manchester United who he joined in the summer of 2015 for £25m.

Joining Lyon was the best decision for Depay considering how his form changed thereby scoring 57 goals in 147 games.

Barcelona will be facing Villarreal in their first game of the season on September 27, and Memphis Depay and Lionel Messi could lead the attack for the Catalans.

The Nou Camp landlords will hope to bounce back from their disastrous season where they failed to win a title at the 2019/20 term.
