Memphis Depay has claimed he is looking to "win many titles" during his time at Barcelona and believes the LaLiga giants are a "perfect fit" for his attacking style of play.

Depay finally made his long-awaited switch to Barcelona earlier this month and linked up with his teammates at Camp Nou following Holland's Euro 2020 campaign. He joined Ronald Koeman's side on a free transfer, and admitted he is looking forward to living the dream with the Blaugrana next season.

Depay told Mundo Deportivo after arriving in Barcelona: "It is a special day, I am very excited to go to the club and to the stadium. It is all very beautiful and it will be an incredible day.

"I hope to win many titles, which is why I have come to this great club. It is what the club represents, it has a very rich history. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at the club. I just came from vacation and now it's time to refocus. I want to start the season well and be totally focused here. I will try to adapt as quickly as possible."

Depay has morphed into a prolific forward and believes he can maximize his potential playing under Koeman. He added: "I love playing attacking football and being creative on the field, generating chances, assists and goals. Barca's style of play is perfect for me. I'm very happy.

"I have made great strides with him [Koeman], especially in the national team, being important in the team. It gave me a lot of confidence and it also helped me when I was injured. He gave me a lot of support and insisted on coming here and signing for the best club in the world. I am very happy that he is here and I am ready to fight for him."
