Memphis Depay is now open to joining Chelsea

Dutch midfielder Memphis Depay is reportedly open to joining Chelsea in the coming transfer windows.

Barcelona was in shambles after Lionel Messi left the club, as they were depended heavily on him for goals and as soon as the player left the club, there was a void and a lack of goals.

Dutchman Memphis Depay was brought in to fill in the space left behind by the Argentine, but he was not consistent enough in front of the goal and injuries have also messed up his time with the club.

Add the fact that the club signed Robert Lewandowski in the summer transfer window – and Depay has seen his minutes on the pitch drop dramatically – which has led to more speculation that he could leave in the coming transfer window

After rejecting Chelsea last summer the Dutch forward is now open to move to Chelsea thanks to their participation in Champions League, according to reports from AS (via Sport Witness).

And the report also adds that Barcelona are willing to let him leave for the right money – as they are keen to revamp their squad

Depay was signed by the Spanish giants who believed that he had the ability to score goals on a regular basis for the club – they were wrong. Man United signed in in belief that he would score goals for the club – they were wrong

So, if Chelsea believes that the possible signing of Depay will help them score more goals and close the gap on both Liverpool and Man City – they are wrong

Depay is a player that does well in the French League or the Dutch League but when he makes that step up to the Premier League or Spanish League – he cannot cope
