La Liga side Barcelona have signed their fourth player of the season in the form of Dutch forward Memphis Depay, who arrives on a free transfer from Lyon.

Depay scored 76 goals for Lyon in 178 games since arriving from Manchester United in 2016, being named in the Team of the Year in the season just gone.

However his contract was run down allowing him to choose his next move and he has decided to link up with his old national team boss with the Netherlands, Ronald Koeman.

Interestingly the 27-year-old has only signed a two-year contract.

Depay is the third free transfer Barcelona have made this summer following the arrivals of Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia from Manchester City.
