Dortmund begins contacts with the Barcelona star to replace Haller
The German club, Borussia Dortmund, has put one of Barcelona's stars within his interests during the current summer transfer period.

Dortmund wants to compensate for the absence of striker Sebastian Haller from the team in the coming period, according to the Spanish sports newspaper "Sport" today, Wednesday.

The newspaper pointed out that Dortmund actually contacted Barcelona striker Memphis Depay, 28, and expressed his desire to include him, but in a free transfer or loan deal until June 2023.

After Barcelona signed this summer with Poland's Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich and Brazilian Rafinha from Leeds United, Depay's chances of participating with the Catalan team on a regular basis in next season's matches have greatly diminished.

Depay's chances of participating also reduce the availability of other great alternatives in the attack against Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez, such as Frenchman Osman Dembele, Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spaniards Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati.

Depay played very few games with Barcelona under Xavi late last season, and the player's performance was not convincing to the coach.

Barcelona needs to sell some of its players to reduce the size of its debts, which amounted to 1.35 billion euros, by taking advantage of the sale of players on the one hand and reducing the size of the salaries incurred by the club annually.

But the Spanish media indicate at the same time that Depay feels comfortable in the ranks of Barcelona and insists on completing his contract.

Some reports indicate that Barcelona is ready to dispense with the Dutch player for 20 million euros.

Haller, who recently moved from Ajax to Dortmund, suffers from a tumor that will keep him out of action for several months.

In the past few days, media reports have mentioned the names of some of the attackers as alternatives to Haller, "28 years old", such as Edinson Cavani, Edin Dzeko, Mauro Icardi, Giovanni Simeone and Anthony Modeste.
