I’m still not sure he will flourish there. A couple of sub par games and he will be getting slaughtered.Reading that you’d imagine he wears Barca pyjamas.
To be fair to him should he go I think he’s been a great servant to the club and great value for the £12m we paid for him. And players deserve to follow their dreams / ambitions. Barca are on a different level to us. Nobody should kid themselves otherwise.
I don’t really follow Barca that much but who would he replace? Rakitic I imagine.
I can see that happening tbh.
However, that won’t stop him chasing a dream.
Thing is, he can let his contract tick down and sign a pre contract in less than 12 months time with them. They could spunk a full budget this summer and get him for nothing.
I don’t know who he would replace. The giants seem to just stockpile the worlds finest players.
It’s the uneven playing field almost every other club has to deal with.
