Barcelona are not the only club who are interested in Memphis Depay. According to Calcio Mercato, AC Milan want to lure the Dutch forward to Italy. The Italian side will fight for Depay’s signing.

In the summer, the Lyon forward had a done deal with Barça so a move to Italy does not look too likely. The Catalan giants have not given up on the forward, especially with Ansu Fati’s lengthy injury. Depay for 12 million would be a coup for any team.

AC Milan do not look like a club of the Barça’s magnitude right now, but they have to find a replacement for the ageing Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish striker has been on top form for the Milan club, but Depay looks like the perfect complementary forward for him.

Barcelona’s business has also slowed down due to Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board resigning. Before confirming any transfer rumour, the club must have a stable board. That means that before any election, Culés must not believe rumours coming their way regarding transfers.

As a Lebanese teenager who never had the chance to support their local team, I fell in love with the club that was FC Barcelona at the start of the decade. I always was passionate about writing and this is exactly what I am looking for: sharing my insights and opinions on football.

After being starved of trophies for two years, Barcelona have won silverware, defeating Athletic Bilbao in the final of the Copa del Rey by four goals to nothing. Lionel Messi was on target twice, while Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann got a goal each as Barça cruise to victory.

Following the game, Griezmann, who opened the scoring for Barcelona, spoke to the media, including about his future. He jokingly replied to that question by saying, “Ask the president.”

He said that he was very proud of the team and how they have managed to turn around the season, “Proud of the team and the work. We know that the season is very long and there are good and bad times. Keep enjoying the team and in the end the reward will come.”

He ended the presser on a celebratory note, saying, “We have to celebrate this title and enjoy it as a result of the work we’ve done.”

The Frenchman has been in excellent form throughout the Copa del Rey campaign and spearheaded the comeback against Granada in the Quarter-finals. He also assisted Gerard Pique for a last minute equaliser against Sevilla when all seemed lost, and has now been rewarded with the first Copa del Rey win of his career. Onto bigger and better things, hopefully.
