Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the FC Barcelona has taken a decision regarding the future of Yusuf Demir. The club no only will leave without effect the option of purchase (of 10 million euros) that has by the Austrian, but it will break his cession during the market of wintry signings. A surprising situation after recently more than five months, before concretising his traspaso, Demir had the nickname of the 'Messi Austrian' and landed to Barcelona with the intention of dinamizar the forward. The 'dream' has lasted very little and the footballer of 18 years is forced to look for a new team.

'SPORT' desveló This Friday that the Barça transmitted to the Austrian the decision that it do not continue in the team, something that goes further of the economic subject. With this 'movement', from the club culé looks for to free a square in the changing room, thinking in the possible incorporations in the window of transfers of January. Xavi Hernández explained in press conference that the exits are compulsory: "When we speak to reinforce the team, probably also will have gone out", by what 'explain' the reason by which the club 'will terminate' of the services of Demir.

However, it results surprising the little confidence that has had the club in the footballer, considered one of the best of his generation in Austria and that, even, to his short age already has debuted with the national selection. Demir Arrived with the intention to be explosive, incisive and with spirits of dinamizar an attack without 'shine', but also the club precipitated when giving him an index card of the first team, when in principle it landed to Can Barça to reinforce the filial, trained by Sergi Barjuán.

His positive exert in the pre-season, nevertheless, caused that Ronald Koeman awarded his complete confidence to him, conscious that after the exit of Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann in the summer and the injuries of Ansu Fati or Dembélé, the leading had remained totally orphan. Demir, in this moment, presented like a light in the middle of the uncertainty, at the same time that Àlex Hill remained without index card in the Barça... The decisions that, surely, the barcelonismo does not understand too much.

Demir Abandons the Barça by the rear door

Although it presented like a very polyvalent player (that it is it) and able to play so much of extreme, by the two bands, as of mediapunta, in the FC Barcelona grieve and has had opportunities in the first stretch of the season. In total, has contested nine official parties, the majority like acting. Sum 290 minutes, without goals or assistances and foresees that it will leave without playing a minute more. Before, several means reviewed that from the City Condal posed leave him in the terracing until March not to see forced to effect the option of purchase.

Like this then , Demir will abandon the Camp Nou by the rear door, to the equal that did it Antoine Griezmann and even the own Leo Messi. The Barça goes back to remain in 'evidence' with his bad sportive planning and remains something very clear: Anybody has a place ensured in the team... And if you do not shine immediately, you do not have more remedy that do your cases, because this of 'expect' is not viable in the Camp Nou.
