memphis depays move to barcelona is off as ousmane dembeles man united talks collapse

Memphis Depay has been left cursing one of his former clubs on deadline day, as Manchester United wrecked the Lyon star’s move to Barcelona

The Old Trafford side backed-out from trying to sign Ousmane Dembele, ending their interest after realising Barca weren’t interested in a permanent deal for the winger.

With the Catalans only willing to pursue Depay if Dembele left the club this summer, Ronaldo Koeman’s side have ended talks, according to RMC Sport.

Lyon had reportedly got so far as sending Barcelona the necessary documents to complete the move, but the forward will now be staying in Ligue 1 next season.  

Talk of either Depay or team-mate Houssem Aouar leaving had cooled after Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had insisted neither player would be sold this summer. 

However, a last-minute U-turn saw the French club’s sporting director, Juninho Pernambucano, reveal that it was ‘possible that he will go to Barca, but it is not certain.’ 

Depay was a driving force behind the French side’s incredible 2019-20, seeing them fight past Manchester City and Juventus in the Champions League before eventually falling to Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

The 26-year-old will miss out on European football this season as, despite their European exploits, Lyon could only manage seventh place in the French top-flight.  

As for Dembele, the Nou Camp flop will have to continue scrapping to revive his Barcelona career after being struck with injuries and poor form since joining the club for £117m in 2017. 

The Frenchman has played just 20 minutes of football in Koeman’s side’s first three games in LaLiga this season, with the Dutch boss preferring Antoine Griezmann and Ansu Fati either side of Lionel Messi in his system.

But as celebrations at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, began, multiple reports emerged revealing Major League Baseball sources had confirmed Turner’s sudden removal from the game was due to him receiving a positive Covid-19 test.

The shocking revelation – in the final game of the already beleaguered 2020 season – raises questions about MLB’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and threatens the feasibility future sporting events as the disease continues to spread.

Turner – a talisman in the Dodgers squad – was grouped with fellow players in the dugout and on the field throughout the game, which was played in an empty stadium.

The win for the Dodgers is their first World Series victory since 1988 and comes after eight consecutive post-seasons.

“But he’s a really nice dude and I didn’t know that.

“Let’s just not get into that. I just woke up and I’m seeing all this s***.

“Did not know he was engaged and I texted him and ask him why he didn’t tell me and he said because they’re on and off.”

Garcia is preparing for his return to the ring on December 5 when he will face Luke Campbell for the WBC’s interim title.

KIDS’ food champion Marcus Rashford shows he’s a bit of a beefcake himself as he launches Nike’s latest underwear line.

The Man United and England forward took a break from campaigning for free holiday meals for poorer schoolchildren to share this snap on Instagram.

The busy 22-year-old has a lot on his plate.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the footballer is set to miss out on a BBC Sports Personality of the Year nomination, despite his remarkable charity work.

Rashford is odds-on favourite with the bookies for the award after earning plaudits for his tireless campaigning for disadvantaged children to receive free meals during school holidays.

But the reports claim the star is likely to be overlooked as the Beeb’s guidelines state only ‘sporting achievements’ can be considered – despite the name of the award.

That would leave Formula One superstar Lewis Hamilton a strong contender after the Mercedes ace beat Michael Schumacher’s long-standing wins record at the Portuguese GP.

Rashford forced the Government into a U-turn over the summer holidays after fighting for the free school meals programme to be extended in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

And he took on ministers again as many vulnerable children head into the half-term without the safety net of food provided at school.
