Barcelona have reached an agreement with Memphis Depay to sell the player in January amid interest from Chelsea, according to AS.

The Blues were interested in signing Memphis in the summer but the Dutch international was reportedly reluctant to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

Depay’s contract at Barcelona expires at the end of the season and Barcelona are hoping to sell him in January so they will be able to get a fee for his transfer.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell Depay for €5million in January amid interest from Chelsea. The fee isn’t expected to be a problem for Chelsea.

The Blues are keen on signing an attacker in January after struggling for goals this season.
