The failure of Lyon forward, Memphis Depay to secure a move to Barcelona during last summer could be the gain of PSG as the Ligue 1 club is planning to bring him to Parc De Princes during the winter transfer window.

Although the Dutch international remains a top priority for Barca who could lose talisman Lionel Messi as a free agent next summer, Depay could be given the opportunity to leave Lyon once and for all.

Although he has been professional since the move failed to materialise due to the current financial situation that the Catalan giant found itself, scoring eight goals in 17 games and created four assists.

According to France Football, Leonardo, the Sporting Director of Paris Saint-Germain has returned his attention to Depay before the reduction of the transfer price of the forward. It is expected that Lyon will accept around five million euros for a player who has just six months left on his current deal than lose him for nothing in the summer.

Le Parisien had revealed a few weeks ago that PSG had confidence in signing the forward.

Joining PSG gives Memphis Depay the opportunity to be with Neymar and Mbappe more than Barcelona

It is no longer news that Depay, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar maintain good relationship both on and off the pitch despite being opponents.

So, being linked to the club is expected to be a good thing for the Dutchman, who might eventually join the club and jettisoned a move to Barcelona who might not be able to sign him in January.

Now that PSG has expressed interest in him, Depay would have spoken with his compatriot Gregory van der Wiel, a former PSG player and his fellow Dutchman.

Why chose van der Wiel? He should be in the best position to give him the objective information, unlike his friends who would want him to join them.

He would have been able to find out how people live in the French capital and the virtues of the club.

Although Barça is the favourite to land the striker, it should not be ruled out that PSG could give a coup and end up achieving the transfer of the Dutchman. With just a few amount to pay for him, he could be a steal for the French champions.
