Gerard Deulofeu’s playing future looks to have been decided, as reports out of Spain suggest Barcelona will bring the AC Milan winger back to Catalonia.
The Blaugrana will welcome in a new coach this summer, as Luis Enrique has already made it clear he will leave the club, but it looks as though whoever is hired will have the 23-year-old at their disposal.
That’s because Mundo Deportivo reports Barcelona management will exercise their €12 million clause to sign Deulofeu back from Everton, who currently own the player.
Although the winger joined Milan on loan in January, the Italian side hold no option to make the move permanent.
As a result Barcelona, who originally sold Deulofeu to Everton for €6m, will bring him back, though it will be left to the new Blaugrana coach to decide whether to keep the Spaniard.
Deulofeu has netted one goal in nine Serie A matches for Milan, with his strong play resulting in a call-up to the Spanish national team.
