Don't know how many times it has to be stated barca can't just buy him and sell him straight away like.



Maybe there's a buyout clause we can use to start a bidding war as well?

Why are we obsessing about the contract details of a player we're glad to see the back of? Some fans need to remember they're just a fan not a board member.

Given more time - both on the pitch and working on his fitness

How much longer does he need to get fit if he's still not managed it in all this time?

Deulofeu was never the finished article people wanted him to be and needed to be handled better by both his Everton managers

think he found his place in Milan and hope he goes back there and smashes it, because he will never get a chance at Everton.

Leicester in the cup last season, he came on at half time when we were absolute garbage.  30 seconds into the second half some woman giving him a barrage of abuse when he hadn't even touched the ball.  "What the fuck have we brought you on for Geri, you're shit" she shouted, almost as if she didn't realise she was asking the wrong person about the substitution.

30 more seconds pass and he whips in the type of cross that two seasons ago Rom was nodding into the far corner for fun, but last season wasn't used to getting them so didn't anticipate it, but it scared Leicester's defence.  "That's why we've fucking brought him on you tit" screamed my wife.  She always makes me so proud at the match!

Given more time - both on the pitch and working on his fitness - Geri could have made it here and been something really special.

More time working on his fitness? He's not back from a long term injury or just a kid. If he's not fit enough to play professional football then he should be ashamed. There is no more time. He doesn't want to get fit, he doesn't want to do the defensive work and his decision making and so his output are poor.

two seasons of playing for a manager who doesn't want you to defend and - bizarrely for a physio - wasn't arsed about player fitness

with one season in between playing for a manager who didn't really like him

and then half a season with a manager who wasn't interested in you, before then going out on loan and finding a manager who liked you, so you play well and work on your fitness

I'm not saying he needs it now, I'm saying he needed it at Everton.  He became demotivated.  it's a shame.  he's boss.

Totally disagree. Talented but really not very good at putting it together for me. I don't think he'll ever make a regular contribution to a side better than us.
As for the fitness I think it's indefensible. Maybe when Martinez was here but everyone else improved under koeman. Lukaku and barkley made more of an effort defensively under koeman. I'd suggest koeman doesn't like him because he doesn't take instruction, he's not fit and his output isn't close to good enough to make up for that. He's had a lot of good managers look at him and move him on. He's now gonna waste a year at Barcelona. If he fails in his next move he'll be 25-26 and having never found a club that could rely on him.

Three and a half years unfit and it's someone else's fault?  No way

He's fit enough to get an assist in the 65th minute with the U21's.

Defintely should forget the year without a goal or an assist now he's contributed an assist to Spain's u21 team. Think koeman will be ringing him up asking him to stay now.

and should obviously forget about the year before that when he was part of the best strike partnership in Europe for a good while...

people acting like he's fluked his way into a career as a professional footballer when anyone even barely suggests there's a player in there

His 3 years of fitness issues are someone else's fault. No doubt he's a reasonable football. He's just yet to find his level. He's been way below standard required at Barca, Sevilla and Everton. Milan don't want him. There's a pattern. Lazy, won't defend and he isn't productive.

When was he part of the best strike partnership in Europe. MSN. Was he Messi Suarez or Neymar. The suggest he was part of the best strike partnership in Europe is utterly ridiculous. No one is saying he shouldn't be a professional. The disbelieve comes with daft claims like this. He'll find his level. It will be a hell of a lot lower than we are though.

Best striking partnership in Europe lolol lolol lolol

Let's calm down a bit. He laid a few crosses on for Lukaku and then when teams got wise he got fucked off.

Del needs a tony Hibbert behind him who does all his defensive work at the expense of any attacking prowess.

I just don't think this works as a tactic in the modern game (as it currently stands).

Looking at tonight's game for example, Spain were caught out a lot on the right hand side with Belerin high up the pitch and Del not in a covering position.

I love Del and think he has the x-factor lacking in the majority of footballers however his failings take too much away from a key attribute in the modern game which is the flying fullback.
