Dutch winger, Memphis Depay is full of delight being a Barcelona player – as he expressed at his signing presentation on Thursday.
Depay penned down a contract until 2023, and declared his excitement ahead of starting his career in a Blaugrana shirt.
“It’s an honour to be here,” Memphis said in a press conference at his unveiling.
“It’s a dream come true since I was a little boy.
“It’s been a long negotiation but the will has always been to play here.
“Thanks to the president and the entire board for making it possible.”
He also credited Ronald Koeman for the role that he has played in his development in recent years, although he added that his move did not depend on the coach being in the dugout.
“I also want to thank the coach.
“[Koeman] played me as a centre forward.
“He made me feel very comfortable and I must thank him for all that.
“I would have come even if he wasn’t here because you can’t say no to Barcelona. I would have still come, but it’s also certain that he has had a big impact.
