Alen Halilovic is aiming to use Barcelona’s tour of the United States to convince Luis Enrique he belongs in the first team, but Sevilla are waiting.
Mundo Deportivo reports that although Halilovic’s contract calls for him to be promoted from Barca B, Enrique has yet to agree to include him in next season’s squad.
It’s possible the Croatia international could be loaned to Sevilla if he doesn’t win over the Coach, but Halilovic hopes to use Barca’s transfer embargo to his advantage.
Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan have been signed by Barca but can’t play until January, potentially creating a space for the youngster.
Monchi and Unai Emery, the Sevilla sporting director and Coach, want Halilovic and Halilovic isn’t against going to Nervion if staying at Barca isn’t an option.
Former Sevilla captain Ivan Rakitic has talked up his old club to his younger compatriot but Halilovic’s first aim is the Barca first team.
