Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has publicly urged forward Memphis Depay not to leave the club amid the ongoing transfer window.
Xavi promised Depay that he would get more playing time at Barcelona, adding that he is happy with him and he likes his attitude.
Following the signing of the likes of Ferran Torres, Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha in the space of six months, it seemed certain that Depay would leave Camp Nou to play more regularly.
Depay has only played just 131 minutes for Barcelona this season, although in significant part due to injury.
Speaking ahead of Barcelona’s Copa del Rey match with CF Intercity on Wednesday, Xavi was asked about the possibility of the Netherlands international departing.
He said at his pre-match press conference, “I don’t want anyone to leave. I am delighted with the squad. It seems there won’t be a market for us. I’m happy with Depay.
“His attitude is good and he will be important to us. He has the ability to make a difference. He’ll have minutes. Like all of them.”
