Reported by Mundo Deportivo, Abdessamad Ezzalzouli is open to the possibility of joining Real Betis during the summer transfer window. While he dreams of playing for Barcelona next season, a move to the Andalusian club is appealing to him if necessary.
Barcelona holds a rare loan success
In recent years, Barcelona has loaned out many players to clubs around the world. However, only a few have impressed the administration enough to grab their attention for a second time. Abdessamad Ezzalzouli, also known as Abde, is one such player from La Masia who has caught the eyes of the Catalan board.
- During his one-year loan spell at Osasuna, Abde scored four goals and provided two assists.
- He established himself as one of the sport’s best young dribblers.
- Barcelona sees him as a significant asset to Xavi’s team dynamics.
Abde could become the scapegoat
Due to their current economic troubles, Barcelona is in dire need of player sales. Struggling to offload players like Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, and Raphinha have made the process difficult. If the club fails to facilitate other big-name departures, Abde may be forced to leave despite deserving a spot with the first team.
Loan with a buy-back clause
If Abde ends up leaving, it will be on a loan with a purchase clause as demanded by Real Betis. However, Barcelona will reserve a buy-back clause similar to the operation involving Chadi Riyad.
