The season 2021-2022 is being very complicated for Sergiño Dest. It has been victim of physical problems, maybe too many, but also has lost the confidence of his trainers. Since Xavi Hernández is in the benches, only has played 90 minutes (playing like extreme). In the others three that has been available to play, has not gone in in action. This has caused that the international with United States aim to be in the ramp of exit.

It is curious as, in 2020 after his pertinent landing of the Ajax, in the barcelonismo Sergiño Dest appeared like a side of present and future, with a lot of possibilities to be "the new Dani Alves" of the team. It has been all the contrary! Only it remains the doubt of if it is by the fault of continuity -at least in this stretch of the season- or because, simply, does not have hollow in this FC Barcelona.

Dest Had the fortune that, from the beginning, Ronald Koeman gave him a lot of confidence, and from the club kept the hope that it would be a player that would remedy the defensive lagoons that has suffered the club in the last years and that will turn into the perfect ally of Lionel Messi, as it went it Dani Alves in his stage like blaugrana. To his time, in the Barça valued that it is very polyvalent. Now everything remains in past.

It is necessary to remember, also, that Dest was one of the most stood out players of the Barcelona group in the 'wake up' of the culés at the beginning of 2021, with Koeman, when it implemented the 3-5-2. With this approach, so much Jordi Alba like Dest happened to play like carrileros and had more presence in the offensive game, what at the same time frees him of a lot of defensive works, because had three head offices that back them in the low zone of the field. Precisely it went with this drawing with which Koeman found the best version of the footballer, because it was able to generate danger, dribble, annotate or assist without neglect his defensive function, with capacity of replegarse quickly.

The history (or the relate) changes very fast

To consider to Dest like an important player to insist in his exit has happened very little time. The international with United States is 'sentenced' for the Barça and aims to go out. Recently it has commented that would be opened to listen offers, conscious that it will not have a lot of minutes in this course, but the last message 'official' that gave his agent Michael Reschke was that "Dest does not have intention to change of club. I am quite skeptical on a possible traspaso to the Bayern this summer".
