Memphis also just doesn't seem like a good fit positionally. He has played most of his career as a LW or as a second striker or more withdrawn striker in a two striker system. Barca need a real 9 that can play alone up front, occupying the CBs and allowing Messi, Griezmann, Coutinho, Fati etc space to operate. Memphis has never been that kind of CF.This will ultimately end in tears,
I like Memphis, he had a sh*t time at United mostly (as he admits) due to his own motivation and self doing, I think he is at a great level now, however Barca is just a mountain too high to climb for him, the pressure at that club to perform constantly at a high level is insane but now with the board/messi situation it's a bubbling pot of disaster just waiting to explode , I can only imagine what Messi is thinking going from at one point Neymar and Saurez upfront with him to Depay and Braithwaite,
Koeman will be sacked after 6 months ( he is a sh*t manager with an even sh*tter attitude) and then he will be on the transfer list by next Summer.
Barca is a mess so who knows. But this has dumb transfer written all over it.
