Sergiño Dest dispels Barcelona exit rumours

Sergiño Dest went through a lot of ups and downs during his freshman year with F.C. Barcelona. He adapted quickly, but failed to perform in key matches like the first leg of the round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain at the Camp Nou in the UEFA Champions League this year.

Dest provided two goals and one assist in 40 appearances across all competitions with Barcelona during his first year. In summer of 2020 he signed a five-year-deal and he expects to stay for longer. The 20-year-old played the full 90 minutes in the United States’ 2-1 loss against Switzerland in their only friendly game prior to facing Honduras on 3 June in the semi final of the CONCACAF Nations League in Denver, Colorado.

Dest dispels rumors regarding his future

There has been speculation that Bayern Munich, Juventus and Arsenal are interested in signing the US player this summer, but he made clear that he wants to stay at Camp Nou.

“I will stay. My time at the Camp Nou has just started and I'm only thinking bout Barcelona,” he said.
