Marc Overmars, former Barça player and Ajax sports director, has been key so that the negotiation between the Catalans and the Dutch for Dest has gone well. The signing of the full-back will be official this week and Overmars has been decisive for it
Sergiño Dest Goes to convert this week in new player of the FC Barcelona. The carrilero right-handed is the favourite of the Barcelona entity and of his trainer, Ronald Koeman, that has insisted a lot in his arrival. After the course of Nélson Semedo to the Wolverhampton, the culés needed another side and bet directly by the one of the Ajax, snatching it besides to a Bayern of Munich that also was trying do with him.
Seemingly, the group barcelonista will pay some 20 million fixed euros to the 'ajacied'. Nevertheless, this figure could grow if they fulfil some variables by performance that still have not gone out to the light. Of this form, in the next days will announce the operation with which Koeman at last will be able to complete his defence. The international North American will arrive to compete with Sergi Roberto, that right now is the headline in the place.
Overmars, one of the 'English' that emigrated to Barcelona
But of the 20 'kilos that will pay the Catalans by the Dutch with passport of United States, the majority will credit along the five campaigns that Dest firm with the Barça. Specifically, as it aims 'Sportive World', only 5 millions will pay this summer, whereas the rest, with his respective interests, will arrive later. The blaugrana insisted a lot in this, since with the crisis of the coronavirus could not allow a payment so high right now.
So that the Ajax have accessed to earn only 5 'kilos' now and the rest on hire purchase, has been nail the figure of Marc Overmars. The sportive director of the ones of Ámsterdam and ex player of the Barcelona has put a lot of eases to arrive to an agreement and has convinced to his club to do the possible deal. The Dutch has a glorious relation with the barcelonistas and therefore the operation has been so simple, in spite of the difficulties mentioned.
In fact, in a first moment the culés tried that the 'ajacied' accepted a compulsory conveyance with option to buy. Of this form, delayed all the payment at least a season and gave margin of manoeuvre to the club. The problem is that with an offer of the Bayern on of the table, the Dutch could not accept a loan. Finally, thanks to the good do of Overmars, all has finished well with this payment on hire purchase.
Dest, an offensive side with a lot of potential
Therefore, Dest will land in the Camp Nou in brief to try follow with his progression in one of the best leagues of the world. The carrilero has potential to turn into a star in his place, especially by his exquisite quality and his desborde. In attack can be differential from the first day and is in defence where still leaves quite a lot of doubts. Backwards it has to improve to give the definite jump and Koeman will try to squeeze him to achieve this prompt.
