Yusuf Demir joined Barcelona last summer on a season-long loan from Rapid Wien. However, after failing to impress, the youngster got his loan cut and he returned to his parent club earlier this month.

The 18-year-old has failed to score or assist in nine appearances for Barcelona this term. So the Catalans decided to cut his loan short or else they would have to pay 10 million euros under a clause in his contract.

Talking to SportDemir has now opened up about how he took it.

“I am sad to leave Barca, but I have grown and become a professional. I see that here people are happy for me and that makes me happy too..

“I want to play, enjoy myself and have fun. I aspire to win everything. My goal is to be first, not to be second.”

AC Milan Midfielder Franck Kessie’s current contract expires this summer. He will become a free agent in the summer. The Ivory Coast international is now free to pre-contract with any club.

According to the Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari, the Catalan side have reached an agreement with Kessie over a move in the summer. The Rossoneri wanted to extend the contract but could not meet the salary requirements of this player.

Since joining AC Milan in 2017, Kessie has made important contributions to the team and has become a key member of the team. In 21 appearances in all competitions this term, he has scored five goals and provided one assist.

Lionel Messi hasn’t exactly been at his best since joining Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona last summer. The Catalan team also struggled and had to sack Ronald Koeman at the beginning of the season.

According to a report from El Chiringuito TV, Messi is not happy in Paris and wants to return to his old team. Barcelona’s doors are said to remain open to Messi but there are concerns about his ability to shoulder his salary.

In 12 Ligue 1 appearances this season, the 34-year-old has scored just one goal and provided five assists. But he did much better in the Champions League, with five goals in five appearances.

Messi regularly visits Catalonia, according to reports, and was seen hanging out with Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba this Monday.
