Depay refuses to commit future to 'great team' Lyon16-Dec-2020, 01:45 am
Memphis Depay says he has not made a decision about his future as his contract at Lyon nears its end.
Rumours of a potential January transfer have been circulating, and although the 26-year-old suggested last month that he would jump at the chance to move to Camp Nou, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has maintainedhe will not leave until the end of the season.
"To be honest, we have a great team here. I don't know what will happen next year. I'm an OL player, the captain, and I'm here to win things, games and beimportant for the team. This is my main goal," he said at a press conference.
"If I start thinking about my future, I might lose my focus. I am 100 per centwith OL. What will happen in the future, we'll see.That's what I've always said.
"I can't say anything about Barcelona. I'm here now, a lot of clubs might be interested."
The Lyon star has been in good form for club and country since recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last December.
"It's crazy how quickly the year has gone by. I woke up today to realize that it happened a year ago," he said.
"Today I'm able to play and I'm happy for it.
"I'm happy to play football, especially at a time when people cannot work, earn money and support their families because of the pandemic."
