The club of coach Ronald Koeman went all out during the introduction of the latest acquisition and the signing of his two-year contract. For the fans, everything could be followed live via the online channels of the Catalan club. “As a child I already realized how big this club is. I chased my dream. To sign here now as a 27-year-old man is great. I look forward to playing in a full stadium,” said Depay, who came over from Olympique Lyon on a free transfer.
As a little boy, Depay already wore a Barcelona shirt with Patrick Kluivert’s name on the back. Chairman Joan Laporta came back to that. “When you were five years old, you received a present from your grandfather,” said the president, who pronounced the word ‘grandpa’ in Dutch. “It was destined. Your grandfather said you would play for Barcelona one day and that’s what happened.”
