'I also have my dreams' - Barca-linked Depay hints at possible Lyon departure


Memphis Depay Lyon UEFA Champions League

Memphis Depay insistshe has never expressed a desire to leave Lyon, though he also hinted as a possible departure by admitting "I also have my dreams".

He scored six goals for Lyon in the 2019-20 Champions League, helping Lyon reach the semi-finals as Les Gones knockedout Juventus and Manchester City last month following the resumption of the competition from its coronavirus-enforced suspension.

However, Rudi Garcia's side could only secure a seventh-place finishin the truncated Ligue 1 season last term, which meant that they missed out on European qualification for the first time in 24 years.

Despite that disappointmentDepayhit the ground running in Lyon's first game of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign, scoring a hat-trickin a 4-1 win over Dijon on Friday.

Speaking to Dutch outlset NOS, Depay, whose contract expires at the end of the season,said of speculation over his future: "I never said I want to leave. When I say something, it is often distorted.

"I still have a one-year contract, I amcaptain,and we have a good team. We have shown that. I feel good about myselfbut also have my dreams. I have always expressed that too.

Speaking about his treble against Dijon, he added:"If you score three times in the first match, you can't complain. Even though I didn't think the match was great in itself. Ultimately, it's about being important and decisive, but I do expect more from myself."

A move to Barca would see Depay reunite with Ronald Koeman, who left his post with the Netherlands to take over at CampNou.

When asked Koeman's departure ahead of theOranje'sNations League meetings with Poland and Italy this week, Depay said: "I don't see it as abandonment.
