The suffering continues within Barcelona, after the Catalan team is close to falling into a real crisis regarding the decision it will take against one of the new players.
Austrian rookie Yusuf Demir has become a real crisis in Barcelona in the recent period, after he reached his eighth official match in the first team shirt this season by participating against Benfica in the Champions League.
Barcelona signed a contract with Demir on loan from Rapid Vienna last summer for 500,000 euros, with an eligibility clause of 10 million euros.
This clause would become “mandatory” in the event that Demir made 10 first-team appearances for Barcelona, which is very imminent.
So far, the Blaugrana officials have not reached their final decision regarding Demir whether to buy his contract in full or not, and the current situation is raising a new headache in the head of Xavi Hernandez.
Xavi was puzzled, either to choose and remove 18-year-old Demir from participating in the matches in the coming period, even as an alternative, so that the club’s coffers do not bear additional funds in light of Barca’s financial crisis.
Or keep the Austrian player in response to his permanent desire to keep and rely on young people, which increases Demir’s chances of staying in Catalonia.
On the other hand, the former Qatari Al-Sadd coach is considering taking advantage of these ten million euros next summer and contracting with another player who will provide the club with more services.
