Olympique Lyon Chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed the club have made Memphis Depay a big offer to remain in France.

Barcelona are keen on signing the Dutch international, who is coming into the final year of his contract in Lyon. However, Barcelona’s finances are uncertain making a move for Memphis difficult.

Speaking to Le Progres, Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed that they have offered Memphis a big new deal, “It is clear that Barça’s finances make a transfer impossible at the moment.

“I have made him a contract proposal that in principle cannot be refused. It is a wonderful offer, I cannot do more.”

A departure may still happen, and Aulas added, “I would like to see Memphis stay. Nothing is impossible. I did everything possible. If he doesn’t stay, we will adapt.”
