It started as a rumor but now we know there’s something else, will Darijo Srna end up playing for Barcelona? I guess we’ll see in the next couple weeks, if you ask me, I think he will.
Srna is already 34 years old and he’s still playing in a second tier league in Ukraine, even after all this years playing the Champions League with Shakhtar Donetsk, maybe he’ll realize that’s time to do something big. Right now, Barcelona only has one reliable right flank, Sergio Roberto. Luis Enrique doesn’t trust Aleix Vidal to cover for Sergi when the Catalan player is injured or needs to be rested, and this is becoming an issue now that all the teams involved in European competitions have to play so many games in a short period of time.
There appears to be an offer on the table already but the only thing that seems to hold Srna back right now is the money. He’s used to a large paycheck in Ukraine and Barcelona is not willing to pay that much for a right flank that in the end will be Sergi Roberto’s sub. But of course, on the other side Srna is thinking about all the things he can achieve professionally playing for Barcelona, even if it’s only for one year.
Right now everybody is waiting for Srna to decide, Roberto Martinez and Raül Sanllehí have already been in contact with the Croatian Player these last couple days. Srna knows that this is probably one of the most important decisions he’ll make I his career.
