Barca identify Suarez replacement

LaLiga

With Luis Suarez expected to team up with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus before the transfer window closes, FC Barcelona have reportedly already identified the Uruguay superstar's replacement.

Suarez is on the verge of a Barcelona exit after being told he has no future at the club by new boss Ronald Koeman last month, and the 33-year-old has already reportedly agreed to personal terms with the Serie A champions.

The Catalan giants have wasted no time in identifying the Uruguay international's replacement and are said to be closing in on a move to sign Olympique Lyon forward Memphis Depay, who previously played under Koeman with the Netherlands national team.

Spanish publication La Vanguardia claim that Barca have had a €25 million (R494 million) offer accepted for the former Manchester United star's signature, whose current deal in France expires at the end of the 2020/21 season.

Depay, who won the 2014/15 Eredivisie Golden Boot award during his time with PSV Eindhoven, has since confirmed knowledge of the LaLiga giants' interest in his services, but admitted that he was not involved in the negotiation process.

"We just have to see what will happen. I'll report to tomorrow and we'll see what happens," Depay NOS after Netherlands' 1-0 UEFA Nations League defeat to Italy on Monday. I haven't heard much more from my agent. I know that there is interest, but I don't have much more to say because I don't know much about it."
