Barcelona 'considering' Deulofeu return

| Thursday, 20 April 2017  0 Comment  [Jump to last]
The possibility that Gerard Deulofeu might return to his boyhood club remains alive as his performances for AC Milan continue to gain attention.

Having struggled at Everton under Ronald Koeman this season, the Spaniard has enjoyed a new lease on life in Serie A, so much so that Barcelona could activate an option in the deal that took the 23-year-old to Goodison Park in a permanent deal in 2015 and sign him back for €12m.

Under the terms of the transfer, the Spanish giants had the option of signing him for €9m last summer or €12m this year but would be prohibited from selling him on for at least one season. Everton would also be due a sizeable percentage of the sell-on fee.

“The club are firmly considering the option to bring him back to play for the first team next season,” Barça's sporting director, Robert Fernandez, told Catalan station TV3 over the weekend.

There are reports in Spain, however, that Lionel Messi has told the top brass at the Nou Camp that he is against the idea of re-signing Deulofeu, indicating that the Blues' forward is not an elite-calibre player.
