Barcelona loanee Sergiño Dest: “I want to do my best to convince Milan to redeem me”

On loan from FC Barcelona, Sergiño Dest expresses his desire to stay at Milan after ending his loan spell with the reigning Serie A champions.

As quoted by Calciomercato, he said:

“I want to do my best to convince Milan to redeem me.”

Dest joined Barcelona following a bright spell with Ajax in the summer transfer window of 2020. He reportedly signed a five-year contract that had a release clause of €400 million.

But after a flurry of unconvincing performances from the full-back, the Barca board finally decided to give him a shot at revival somewhere else, with Milan securing the player’s services on a season-long loan in the eleventh hour of the 2022 summer transfer window.

The contract has an option to buy worth €20 million at the end of the loan spell. Since moving to Italy, Dest has made just two appearances, with both of them coming in the Champions League as a second-half substitute for the Rossoneri. As such, he is still awaiting his Serie A debut.
