'Lyon have to take advantage of me now' - Barcelona-linked Depay refuses to make future promises


Memphis Depay Barcelona GFX

Memphis Depay has told Lyon to make the most of him while they can as he is unsure if he will still be at the club after January amid persistent links with Barcelona.

A deal failed to materialise late in the recent transfer window, despite the 26-year-old agreeing personal terms with Barca, but a fresh approach is expected in thenewyear.

Depay is out of contract at the end of 2020-21 and says he cannot guarantee he will even see out the remainder of the campaign at the Groupama Stadium.

"You ask me about this a lot, but I'm not going to make promises that I'm not sure I can keep," he told Telefoot when asked if he will swap clubs in January.

"I think Lyon has to take advantage of my presence here now, and Ihave totake advantage of being here.That's what I try to do every day. You can ask those around me: I like totrain,and I try to be positive every day."

Depay was involved in Lyon's 2-1 win over bitter rivals Saint-Etienne on Sunday, a win that lifted Rudi Garcia's side up to fifth in Ligue 1 with 10 games played.

Theforwardhas featured in each of those matches, scoring five times and setting up three more.

Since joining Lyon from Manchester United in January 2017,Depayhas been directly involved in 83 Ligue 1 goals in 111 appearances, putting him level with Edinson Cavani-who played in 26 fewer games -and behind only Kylian Mbappe (110goal involvementsin 100matches).

For comparison, Luis Suarez scored and assisted a combined 112 goals in 112 appearances for Barcelona over the same timeframe, while Lionel Messi is way out in front with 173 goal involvements in 129 matches.

Depay has hinted he is frustrated at Lyon as his side already trail leaders Paris Saint-Germain by seven points.
