Depay Train With Atletico

This Thursday afternoon, Memphis Depay joined Atletico Madrid training under Diego Simeone’s orders. This comes as his transfer to the Madrid side is still not official, but Barcelona are said to let him go for around €4 million.

This Thursday afternoon, Depay started his adventure as a new Atletico Madrid player. Journalist Javi Gomez filmed him training under Simeone’s orders at Atletico’s training ground, pairing up with Axel Witsel in his first steps as part of the Madrid team. All this was done with the permission of Barcelona, ​​who still haven’t made his transfer official.

The deal will be closed for around €3 million with €1 million more in add-ons, as well as an option to buy for Yannick Carrasco, who the Catalan side wanted to include in the deal, but he will end up staying for now after that Atletico’s board said no.

The deal will take effect as soon as La Liga has sent the transfer through the bureaucracy and the two clubs officially announce it.

While he awaits the paperwork and signatures, the ex-Lyon man has already set about preparing to be ready for his manager as soon as possible.

He’s quite likely to make the next squad list if nothing goes pear-shaped as he comes into form after spending the first half of the season at Barca, although Xavi didn’t use him much due to the forward surplus he had.
