Barcelona have chosen all but one of Europe’s top five leagues as they decided to loan the highly acclaimed Conrad de la Fuente on loan next season.
According to the Spanish edition MarcaBarcelona told De la Fuente that a withdrawal from the loan is necessary for the 2021/22 campaign, as the 19-year-old is ready to leave Team B, but not yet at the stage of his development in which he would receive the usual minutes in the first squad.
Marca reports that both sides began to discuss the situation after the end of the season, and the decision was made on the last day as Blaugrana made it clear that Konrad’s time with Team B was over.
It is added that England, Germany, France or a stay in Spain are the main destinations for a 19-year-old, the transition to Italy is not possible due to the passport of a Haitian Spanish American.
De la Fuente made his Barcelona B debut in December 2018 and has made an impression as he has become a key part of the team over the past two seasons, scoring nine goals and assisting five in 29 games.
De la Fuente has played for the first team in three short matches that have faced Ronald Koeman’s side in the Champions League and the Spanish Cup this season.
De la Fuente has a contract until 2022 as part of a deal that includes the option of two more years, so Barcelona are completely safe with a man who has already played on the top US team.
The winger, who has seen him play almost equally on the right and left flanks this season, is reported to be lucky enough to have multiple teams to choose from as he tries to find the best fit for regular football.
