Despite the fact that Barça is without Braithwaite and Agüero, and only has pure strikers Memphis and Ansu, the decision upon Luke de Jong is power plug. Before even Xavi, Barça had already decided get rid of it in the winter market if possible. its defender and lifeguard in Barcelona was Ronald Koeman. Once dismissed, his presence in the first team does not make sense. And less, after seeing the almost derogatory treatment from hobby with the forward every time he has appeared on the field in home games. The goals he forgave in the fields of Benfica and the surreal Vaseline from Vallecas they ended up crucifying him.
However the Barça you have a ‘problem’ at this point. If you want give in to dutch to a third team in the winter market, you have to ask permission to Sevilla, which is who has the property of the player. This is how assignments are agreed. Therefore, Barça will have to negotiate with Sevilla if a third club interested in the former PSV player.
Luke de Jong has fallen from the call of Louis Van Gaal, with which he has had the possibility of train from the first day with Xavi. Only a 180 degree change or something Xavi saw in those first training sessions would change the situation of a player who entered with the left foot. Did not help that Barça improvise his signing in a bad way on the last day of the market when Atlético de Madrid gave him long for Joao Félix and, nevertheless, he did give the placet to the Griezmann’s departure to set the bills. The plays of Lisbon and Vallecas, where he sent a penalty to De Jong, who is also beginning to assume that he will have to leave Barça. Although it may be bizarre, one of the options that Luuk de Jong has open is his return to Sevilla. If there low of En-Nesyri lengthens, Lopetegui could give the OK on his return since, to this day, he only has Rafa Mir as a pure forward.
