Barcelona’s Sergino Dest makes future decision amid Chelsea interest
An insight into Sergino Dest’s stance on leaving Barcelona has been provided in Spain.
Sergino Dest’s Barcelona stint
FC Barcelona would snap up Sergino Dest in October of 2020 from Dutch powerhouse, Ajax.
La Blaugrana are believed to have paid around €21m to bring the right-back to the Camp Nou, a decision that seemed like some solid business at the time with Dest appearing to be the latest in a long line of top stars to emerge from the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
However, Dest’s stint in Catalonia has been far from plain sailing so far.
Instead, the young full-back has seemingly been a victim of the current crisis Barca as a club are enduring.
And, under new manager Xavi Hernandez, Dest has struggled for minutes, though this is also in part due to injury and covid issues.
Dest eyeing Barcelona stay?
However, recent reports seemed to indicate that Barcelona were looking to sell the American for a fairly small fee, believed to be just €15m:
