#2 Longevity and instant impact

Depay is not a youngster who is new to the game neither is he a burnt-out player who only has a few more years left to give. The player is currently only 27 years old which means that he is in his prime and his stats with Lyon can complement this sentiment. The player is quite experienced and has played at the top level of Dutch football, English football as well as French football. With a lot of experience on his shoulders, he will be able to command the team alongside Lionel Messi. He has also been the captain for Lyon in the past season which has also given him some more responsibilities on the pitch. Youngsters like Ansu Fati, Pedri, and Riqui Puig will be able to benefit from his years of experience in top-level football. Depay can carry on for many years at Barcelona if he is a success and the fact that he has already proven his worth at Lyon, PSV and Netherlands, is promising for the Blaugranas.
