Lyon forward, Memphis Depay cannot be a pure nine for Barcelona, Roy Makaay has said.
Roy, however, believes his fellow countryman would be a useful option at Camp Nou if he is signed.
According to him, even if Depay cannot be a natural leader of the line in the Luis Suarez mould, the youngster would offer important qualities to Koeman and the Spanish club.
He added that since Ansu Fati has been ruled out long term with a knee injury, signing the Holland international makes a lot of sense.
His words, “Depay is a very good player, although I don’t see him at the level yet that he had before he was injured.
“He’s not a pure nine but if he goes to Barca, I’m sure he’ll be important because he’s got a lot of quality.”
“I love Ansu Fati, he’s showing he’s got a really high level for an 18-year-old kid.
“I also like Pedri, I didn’t know him and if you like football you’ll like to see him play. Koeman’s showing he’ll give the young players a chance.”
