Memphis Depay agrees to join Barcelona this summer, but the situation could change if Ronald Koeman is replaced as head coach, according to a report.

Memphis Depay has reportedly already agreed to join Barcelona this summer, but the situation could change if Ronald Koeman is replaced as head coach of the Catalan giants.

Koeman is believed to have met with club president Joan Laporta on Thursday to discuss his future at Camp Nou, amid suggestions that there could be a change of manager before the start of next season.

Memphis continues to be strongly linked with Barca as he prepares to leave Lyon on a free transfer, and according to Marca, the Netherlands international has agreed a deal with the La Liga outfit.

The report, though, claims that the move could fall through if Koeman leaves, with the former Manchester United attacker keen to work under his former national team manager at club level.

Memphis has again been in impressive form for Lyon during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 21 goals and registering 10 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

Manchester City duo Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero are also expected to join Barca on free transfers at the end of June.
