Depay starred as Barca kicked off their La Liga campaign with a 4-2 home win against Sociedad on Sunday.
He failed to get on the score-sheet, but made an instant impression and lefts fans stunned during a moment of magic.
In the fourth minute of the match, the Dutchman performed a sensational flick that completely fooled Robin Le Normand.
The former Manchester United star received the ball from Gerard Pique and delicately flicked the ball over the on-rushing defender's head.
He was inexplicably fouled by the Frenchman, which prevented him from running at Sociedad's defence.

Depay's brilliance sent social media wild.
One tweeted: "He's looking menacing."
A second wrote: "Such a good player, great confidence 3 minutes into your Barcelona debut. Gutted he couldn’t play alongside Lionel Messi but I’m saying this now, he is already the main man of this Barca side."
A third added: "Hitting us with that Ronaldinho move? He’s too likeable. I KNOW he’s working for that #10 shirt."

While Depay didn't score, he registered an assist - with Pique, Martin Braithwaite (x2) and Sergi Roberto scoring in Barca's win.
Speaking after the match, Ronald Koeman praised his team and singled out his compatriot.
"I think our game can be more collective than before, but I’d prefer to have Messi in my team. But if we don’t have the player, it has to be the collective."
On Depay, he added: "He played a great game and he gave a great assist. He’s always doing things."
He also spoke highly of Braithwaite following his brace.
"He’s an example of a professional. He always works for the team and has improved his game. He has speed and is difficult to stop," said the Barca boss.
"I’m delighted to have a player like him."
