‘Deulofeu definite option for Barca’

Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernandez has confirmed that buying back Gerard Deulofeu “is absolutely an option” for the club this summer.

Barca retained a €12m buyback clause for Deulofeu when they sold him to Everton in 2015, and Robert suggested the Blaugrana were ready to repurchase their former attacker.

“Deulofeu? Yes, he’s absolutely an option for the future. Definitely,” he told TV3.

Deulofeu has enjoyed a rapid rise since the turn of the year, with a loan switch to Milan proving successful and culminating in a both Spain cap and goal against France.
