Paco Alcacer And Gerard Deulofeu Considering Leaving Barcelona

Paco Alcacer and Gerard Deulofeu could leave Barcelona before the start of next season, reports Mundo Deportivo.

Paco Alcacer, who joined Barca from Valencia last year, has barely figured under Ernesto Valverde this term and is available for transfer.

Mundo Deportivo adds that Gerard Deulofeu, who re-joined Barca from Everton in July, could also depart the Camp Nou once again next year.

The winger, who is under contract until 2019, has a €20m (£17.8m) buyout clause.

According to another Spanish news outlet Marca, both Deulefeu and Alcacer are keeping one eye on being included in Spain’s 2018 World Cup squad.

They state that the Catalan club will not allow them to leave in January as they believe the two still have a vital role to play in the squad.

However Alcacer reportedly will make his mind up over the next month if he wants to stay at Barcelona after failing to hit the grade since his £26million move from Valencia in 2016.

The striker has only featured in three games in all competitions this campaign – his last start came against Real Betis in the middle of August.

And his last appearance for the Copa del Rey champions came against Alaves on August 26.

Deulofeu meanwhile has played seven times, though he has failed to get on the pitch in the last two matches.
