Reportedly, Robert Lewandowski doesn’t have a good relationship with Barcelona teammate Memphis Depay. The forward is happy to have been given the number 9 shirt by the Dutchman but feels unconnected on the pitch.
El Nacional’s top story of the day comes from Barcelona and they claim there is a rift between Lewandowski and Depay. The Polish striker reportedly doesn’t like the Dutchman, who stayed there despite offers to leave.
Lewandowski is looking to lead the attack and the report claims the Poland star is looking to link up with Pedri, Gavi, Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati on the pitch. El Nacional add that the Dutchman was deliberately left out by the former Bayern Munich star when asked about his favorite teammates lately.
Memphis Depay is determined to do well at Barcelona
Depay has admitted he had offers to leave Barcelona in the summer but decided to fight for his place at the Camp Nou. The Dutchman hasn’t named any clubs but has confirmed he had offers on his table over the summer.
Speaking to the press (via GBeNeFN), Depay said:
“They were able to win a lot of players. I weighed my options. Certain clubs came in. I was the top scorer with [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang last season. It’s not that I haven’t shown anything. It’s not like I’m just leaving because there are competitors. I like the competition.”
“I’m a Barca player and I’m having a good time at the club. The people are nice. I’m just having a good time. You have to accept the decisions the manager makes. It doesn’t mean you.” must go away. I like to show that I’m better than others. I do that in training and then the coach plays.”
Juventus were reportedly the side that came closest to signing Depay in the summer. The Italian side had tried to sign the striker but the move fell through despite Depay agreeing to end his contract with Barcelona.
