Barcelona’s buy-back option over Gerard Deulofeu is something that leaves the Catalan press still covering all of the player’s moves.
In an article on Wednesday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo, the loan transfer to Milan is seen as a very good decision for him, as the first games have shown he can save his season there.
The newspaper has a few quotes from people close to the player, and even though Deulofeu’s relationship with Ronald Koeman is said to be very honest, some of the Everton manager’s decisions are taken with a bit of objection.
When speaking about Lukaku, they claim that “If you don’t know what to do with the ball, make a long pass to him” was a frequently heard order at Everton’s dressing room, something that makes Koeman’s style ‘pragmatic’.
That’s why Deulofeu received the news of the Milan move with excitement, as he finally saw an opportunity to shine for a big club.
A source told Mundo Deportivo that Deulofeu’s “priority was to play”, no matter where, although the Italian league is clearly a place where he has adapted best due to his lack of commitment in defending. The headlines from the Italian press, who have even called him a ‘God’, are highlighted in the story too.
A decision over the player’s future doesn’t seem to have been taken yet, as it doesn’t depend on him only. Everton, Milan and even Barcelona all can make their moves count on the player for the next season, and his only demand seems pretty clear: He wants more minutes.
