Dest 'is eyeing a Barca exit after falling out of favour under Xavi'

Sergino Dest ‘is already eyeing a Barcelona exit after falling down the pecking order under Xavi’, with young defender ‘making contact with Bayern Munich’ in bid to seal £25.7m switch

  • Sergino Dest is reportedly eyeing a move to Bayern Munich from Barcelona 
  • Reports in Spain suggest the youngster has grown disillusioned under Xavi 
  • He has fallen down the pecking order behind Oscar Mingueza and Ronald Araujo
  • Barcelona are understood to be willing to let the American leave for £25.7m 

Barcelona star Sergino Dest is reportedly eyeing a Nou Camp exit and has contacted Bayern Munich over a £25.7million switch.

The 21-year-old back joined the Catalans in 2020 in a £23.8m switch from Ajax, with the LaLiga side seeing off the German giants for the United States international’s signature.

Dest, a regular starter under former boss Ronald Koeman, has since fallen down the pecking under new coach Xavi and was not named in the matchday squad for Wednesday night’s 3-0 defeat by Bayern.

And according to El Nacional, Xavi prefers Oscar Mingueza, Ronald Araujo and Sergi Roberto at right back, while Dani Alves returns to the fold in January. 

The Catalan newspaper reports that Dest has made contact with Bundesliga champions Bayern over a switch, with the youngster growing disillusioned with his prospects at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona legend Xavi would not block an exit for Dest, the report adds, and the American would be made available for €30m (£25.7m).

Dest was linked with a switch to Bayern Munich and is valued by the club at £25.7million 

Bayern handed Barcelona a night to forget on Wednesday, with their 3-0 thrashing consigning the LaLiga club to a third place finish and an exit from the competition.

Xavi said: ‘I am working, the same the team is, to win tomorrow and make it to best sixteen. That is our reality. We logically have other competitions.

‘La Liga will tell us how far we’ve reached by the end of the season. But we can’t let go of any competition.

‘We are Barcelona and we must try to win all competitions. Copa del Rey, Supercups, La Liga and Champions League.’
