Lyon president Aulas: Barcelona have ruled out bidding for Depay

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says Memphis Depay will NOT be joining Barcelona this summer.

Aulas has revealed that Barcelona won't be able to afford Depay due to the financial implications of the coronavirus crisis.

"The president of Barcelona told me on Sunday that Barcelona were suffering a lot from the COVID-19 crisis and had no possibility of making an offer," he wrote on Twitter.

Aulas was responding to an article from De Telegraaf that claimed a deal was done.
