Following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski and prior to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s exit, the Dutchman’s future at the Camp Nou looked somewhat bleak.
The former Manchester United forward has had to play more of a supportive role this season after a big summer spend, making only three appearances so far, but Depay says he is up for the challenge.
Speaking to ESPN while on international duty, he said: “Other clubs came and then you just look at your options. I decided to fight for my chance here.
“I was the topscorer of Barca with Aubameyang. I love competition and I don’t walk away from it. I enjoy being at Barca."
