Gerard Deulofeu does not believe he will return to Barcelona and has suggested extending his stay at Watford following a January move.
The 24-year-old return to the Camp Nou last summer from Everton and made 10 top-flight appearances, but has had his spell at the Hornets disrupted by injuries.
“It’s clear that I will not be returning to Barca,” Deulofeu explained on Cadena Ser.
“I do not think the Coach would want me back at Barca and I have been told by Watford that I am wanted, so it could be that I stay at the club.
“I cannot say what will happen and we must wait but now I’m back from my injury (a fractured metatarsal) and now I hope to finish the season strongly.
“I need to remain calm and make the right decision but a Barca return is not likely.”
