Earlier on, the player was linked with the Arsenal move and the Catalans were supposed to buy Paul Pogba instead of the winger, but now it seems that both the club and the player are determined to keep things stable.
However, the player came back to Ciutat Esportiva already the day before yesterday, shortening his post World Cup holidays to 10 days.
The 21-year-old winger was brought to Barca for a sum of 150 million euro but his debut season at the club was overshadowed by a serious pair of injuries he got during it.
Excited about the news, right?
