Barcelona fullback will shortly complete move to PSV

For FC Barcelona to effectively participate in the summer transfer window and pursue their top priority targets, the Catalan titans will need a larger budget and a larger salary margin.

This issue has been particularly troublesome for Barcelona, as it has complicated the process of registering current players and certain newcomers to the club. As a consequence, Barcelona has implemented a number of measures to address this issue.

The Catalan club decided to extend Marc Andre Ter Stegen’s contract, deferring his salary to future years of his new 2028 contract. The same is being attempted with Frenkie De Jong’s existing contract.

However, FC Barcelona is in for a different type of positive news. According to Rik Elfrink, American fullback Sergino Dest, whom the Catalan giants have been trying to offload for some time, may eventually be on his way to Dutch club PSV.

Moreover, he reports that the player’s medicals have already been completed, and it appears only a question of time before the deal between the Dutch club and FC Barcelona for the American fullback is finalized.

Dest moved to Barcelona from Ajax in 2020 and already had experience playing in the Eredivisie, which should make it easier for him to adjust to life back in the Dutch league. This is something that he has not been as successful with in other European leagues, such as Spain, or even during his one season stint at AC Milan in Italy. Dest’s previous experience in the Eredivisie should help him adapt more quickly back within the Dutch league.

The 22-year-old will possibly be on his way out on loan yet again, but it would only clear up 50% of his salary from Barca’s record. It would also potentially open up more salary margin that Barcelona could then use to incorporate their unregistered players as well as any new arrivals that end up coming to FC Barcelona over the course of the remainder of the summer transfer window.
