18-year-old forward Yousuf Demir may not be joining Barcelona after reports that his players were not good enough for Azul Grana.

Catalan sports publication Deario Sport reported on Tuesday that 18-year-old forward Yusuf Demir may end his future at Barcelona as the club considers the player not good. Enough for the Azul Grana team. After moving from Rapid Vienna on loan this season 

Barcelona have brought Yousuf Demir from Rapid Vienna on a season-long loan with an option to buy. But Azulgrana are reportedly not convince the 18-year-old winger’s abilities are good enough for the club to consider releasing the player in January. 

Ronald Koeman had opted for Demir earlier in the season before the 18-year-old left the Dutchman’s plans. Because the players lack confidence when given the opportunity to enter the field.

A source told Deario Sport about Demir: ‘He did well in pre-season. But that pressure has been troubling him since the start of the season. He stopped trying to stir up his rivals. He didn’t dare take the risk. When the ball reaches him and he will always play short.’

Although Demir still has time to prove his talent, Ousmane Dembele is fit and ready to play. That means the 18-year-old winger’s playing opportunities are fewer. And could end his future at Barca, having only made four appearances in the Spanish league this season.
