The past six months have been a kind of roller-coaster ride for Yusuf Demir.
He was gloved by Barcelona last summer from Rapid Vienna on a season-long loan deal with a choice to make the transfer eternal.
Signed with a view of strengthening the B team, the young winger got a chance in the senior format during pre-season, and he made a huge impact.
So much so that, ex-manager Ronald Koeman made up his mind to officially call him up to the first-team list, even going as far as handing him the No. 11 jersey.
Nevertheless, all the promise that was exhibited in the pre-season was not at all seen as Demir grappled to make an effect and eventually fell out of favour.
Things did not improve for him after the entrance of Xavi Hernandez. He has made nine first-team appearances but has not appeared in over a month. That is because Barca would have been obliged to sign him for €10 Million had he played ten games, a storyline that the Barca have been wanting to avoid amid financial issues.
Considering the situation, the FC Barcelona are ready to cut his loan at Camp Nou, whilst the winger himself is wishing to conclude his time in the squad.
It is claimed that there are plethora of clubs, especially in the Bundesliga, who are intrigued in signing him by paying the €10 Million fee that Barca would have been obliged to spend.
Barcelona are working towards settling the conclusion of his loan deal and it remains to be seen where he ends up once that occurs.
