The US right back is not interested in leaving and wants to kick on and improve but the club might think otherwise
Barcelona are trying to sign Cesar Azpilicueta and it could happen this week. The Blaugrana are sure that he will come and the debate is open again over Sergino Dest’s future. He would lose his spot in the team and could be sold if an interesting offer arrives. And it looks like they will.
Dest is playing many minutes in pre-season, without clear competitors for his spot. Sergi Roberto and Araujo can cover there, but if Azpi comes he would be first choice.
For the coach he is a priority and Xavi thinks the team would gain a lot of solidity with his arrival.
Barcelona need to get rid of players, with Umtiti and Braithwaite two of those key, and Dest another.
The US defender has said he doesn’t want to leave but Barcelona are getting calls from clubs asking about him. They won’t do anything until Azpilicueta comes, but in August many things could happen.
