Memphis Depay has confirmed the interest from Barcelona but they are not the only club circling the Lyon attacker.

The attacker is out of contract with Lyon this summer and in an interview with L’Equipe he confirmed that he will leave the club this summer.

Memphis leaves the French club with a heavy heart, “I have changed here, I have grown up here. I have become a man. I look back on a wonderful period. I will not forget the beautiful memories here, just like the friendships. This was my home.”

Barcelona are said to be the favourites to sign the Netherlands international and Memphis confirmed their interest. However, he adds that other clubs are in the running and he will take time to make a decision.

Memphis said, “Barcelona shows interest in me. But they are not the only ones. At the moment there is no agreement with any club.

“The decision about my future deserves some reflection. I’m a free transfer, so the negotiations shouldn’t be that difficult. Even my mom could …”

Memphis will play his final game with Lyon on Sunday against Nantes.
