More than a revolution, Xavi Hernández is throwing back time at FC Barcelona. And it is that the new coach has already materialized the return of Dani Alves, who had left in 2016. Then he asked for the return of Thiago Alcántara, who left the club in 2013 and now, a new rumor, details that he would have requested another return, much more recent worse.
This is Konrad de la Fuente, a young talent from La Masía. "The name of Konrad de la Fuente is on the table. The club considers that his departure was a mistake. It would be a viable option and could cover the position of winger and winger" assures Spanish journalist Emilio Valenzuela.
Konrad came out in 2021, in July, as part of a cleanup and to please Koeman, adds David Galbe. The unusual thing is that the player, who went to Olympique de Marseille for a sale of 3.5 million, could return if Barça now pay 10 million. "Business" style FC Barcelona. The forward could serve as a winger, one of the positions that Xavi wants to reinforce a lot. Konrad is international with the United States.
Formed at La Masía, Konrad de la Fuente barely played three games in the Barça first team and none per league: two for the Champions League (2020-21) and one for the Copa del Rey that the Blaugrana club ended up winning, the 2020 -twenty-one. The player, weeks ago, had complained about his departure, blaming Koeman: "I don't know what Koeman thought of me. I was with them last season, but I hardly played".
