Following Depay's high level of consistency for Lyon, Barcelona started indicating interest in the services of Memphis Depay for over two years. Lyon could have sold Depay when he had one-year remaining in his contract, but Lyon decided to keep him till the end of 2021 season. Memphis Depay refused to sign a contract extension after his contract expires at the end of the season. His refusal to sign a new contract meant that Delay can leave for free.
