Ez Abde could be set to stay at Barcelona. This will happen if Memphis Depay and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both leave before the transfer window closes.
The initial plan for Abde would be to sign a new contract at Barcelona. Afterwards, he should go out on loan with a host of La Liga clubs asking about the Moroccan winger.
However, the latest update suggests Barcelona told Abde to be patient. The club want to see what will happen in the final weeks of the window.
Diario Sport reckon Xavi spoken personally to the winger and told him he’s “very satisfied” with his attitude.
Therefore, Barcelona put his potential departure on hold as they wait to see if Memphis will join Juventus and Aubameyang will sign for Chelsea.
If both deals go through, Abde might have a chance to join the first-team squad for the 2022-23 campaign.
The youngster will be the team’s sixth attacker. He will join Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Dembele, Ansu Fati, and Ferran Torres in the squad.
