Barcelona announce agreement with Memphis Depay on a free transfer
Netherlands attacker Memphis Depay will join Barcelona for free at the end of this month when his contract with Lyon expires.
The 27-year-old, who is presently representing the Netherlands at Euro 2020, has signed a two-year contract with Barca.
He scored from the penalty spot in his country's 2-0 win over Austria on Thursday, ensuring their place in the last 16.
Depay scored 76 goals in 178 games for French Ligue 1 side Lyon.
Depay started his career at PSV Eindhoven before joining Manchester United where he spent two seasons.
He struggled to settle down in Manchester and moved to France in 2017.
Depay's move to the Nou Camp was long anticipated, and he has expressed his desire to play for Ronald Koeman.
He is Barcelona's third free transfer signing this transfer window after former Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia.
