According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will not be signing Memphis Depay from Lyon in January.

The Catalan giants are struggling financially and at the moment cannot afford to meet Lyon’s asking price which is only €5 million, unless players are sold on in January.

The Dutch international is out of contract in the summer and Barcelona is willing to wait until then to pick him up on a free. The club’s presidential elections are also getting in the way of any transfer deals.

Barcelona could now miss out on Memphis with Juventus willing to meet the asking price to sign the attacker next month.
