Memphis Depay Had A Horrendously Awkward Handshake With Thierry Henry, His Face Said It All

Memphis Depay has been rinsed online after an awkward handshake with Thierry Henry.

Barcelona are over in the United States for a stacked pre-season tour, which includes games against Inter Miami, Real Madrid, Juventus and New York Red Bulls.


And Xavi Hernandez's squad had two surprise visitors to their training base recently as Henry and the recently retired Sergio Aguero, who finished his career with Barcelona after a heart issue forced him to hang up his boots.

Henry chatted with Barca players old and new, including old teammates Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets. He also had a wonderful embrace with new signing Raphinha following the Brazilian's £55 million switch.

But the main talking point from the clip was a bit of a cringey moment with Depay and Henry. The actual handshake was fine and the Netherlands international looked absolutely delighted to have met the Arsenal and France icon.

However, it seems as though Barca's No.9 thought that he was going to have a bit of an extended chat with Henry and it just didn't happen.

Instead, Henry moved onto the shaking hands with the next player while Memphis was just stood there looking a little lost.

It garnered reaction aplenty on social media:

With the new attacking additions in the form of Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski, Depay's first-team future at Barca looks bleak and he could be about to leave just a year after moving on a free transfer.

Both Ajax and Juventus have been linked with the former Manchester United man but a recent report from SPORT says Spurs are keen on bringing him back to the Premier League.

It's said the North London outfit don't want to meet Barcelona's €20 million valuation but are instead happy to pay €17 million.

Barca have given Spurs permission to negotiate and talks are ongoing with Depay's representatives.
