Juventus unlikely to sign Memphis Depay from Barcelona

As broken by Fabrizio Romano last night, Arkadiusz Milik and Juventus have reached an agreement over personal terms, suggesting that Memphis Depay is very unlikely to move to Turin.

Marseille are set to accept Juventus’ offer, which is a loan deal valued at €2m, with the Italian outfit having the option to purchase the striker outright for €8m at the end of the season.

Juventus were in the market for a new forward following the departure Álvaro Morata. They were keen on signing Depay from Barcelona, however, negotiations stalled between the club and the player.

The 28-year-old wanted a two-year contract worth €7m a season, with the option to extend the deal by one more year. It appears as though Juventus were not willing to meet Depay’s demands, thus focusing their attention on signing Milik.

If Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ends up joining Chelsea, it is very unlikely that the Dutchman will leave the club as well.
