Lyon sporting director Juninho admits Memphis Depay could yet sign for Barcelona on Monday.

The Dutch forward has been linked with a move to Barcelona this window, which closes on Monday.

"He has 12 months left on his contract, so..." Juninho told Telefoot on Sunday.

"He has a contract [agreed] with Barcelona, we're not hiding from that.

"It's possible that Memphis signs for Barcelona tomorrow [Monday], but that's not certain.

"He's the most likely player to leave.

"If he stays, he'll help us."

On Sunday, Depay was left on the bench for Lyon's 1-1 draw with Marseille in Ligue 1.

"Memphis didn't play because of his fitness and also because of what could happen tomorrow," Lyon boss Rudi Garcia explained.
