He was a last-minute signing that nobody understood but Ronald Koeman backed him. Luuk de Jong came in from Sevilla but his performances have left a lot to be desired and now he has to go.
Barcelona want to reinforce their attack in January and Barcelona will try and send him away in January as he won’t be getting more minutes.
Barcelona’s idea was to bear it out with Koeman until the end of the season but finally, they had to act. Now Xavi Hernandez will come in and he does not want Luuk de Jong.
A player can’t play for three clubs officially during a season but the Dutchman did not appear for Sevilla, so he can go on loan elsewhere. Besiktas are interested. Barcelona have eyes on a wide forward of a top-level; Raheem Sterling for example.
