Ronald Koeman raging over Memphis Depay failed transfer to Barcelona

Ronald Koeman was furious to find out that Barcelona failed to sign a centre-back and forward, with Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay being the two candidates, Goal report.

The coach really wanted Depay and was even involved in the operation, convincing the forward to put pressure on Lyon to sell him.

Koeman is frustrated that Barca weren't able to part ways with some players, including Ousmane Dembele, who would've opened the door for Depay.

As a reminder, the Frenchman refused a move to Manchester United, with Blaugrana being open to either selling him or sending him on loan.

As for Memphis, Barca had a deal agreed with the player and the club, but La Liga refused to register the forward because it would have exceeded the club's salary limit.

Usually, we rate Goal at three stars, but the report comes from Ruben Uria, the journalist that interviewed Leo Messi back in August, so we are inclined to believe that he knows the behind-the-scenes at Camp Nou.
