Barcelona decided to part ways with Luuk de Jong and Adama Traore, Saturday (2/7/2022) early morning WIB. Los Cules are reluctant to extend the duration of the loan of De Jong and Traore.

Both players were brought in by the Blaugrana in the 2021/2022 season. Both were recruited on loan.

De Jong was brought in from Sevilla, while Traore was brought in from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, the two came at different times. De Jong was recruited in the summer of 2021, while Trore was brought in by Barca in the winter transfer market of 2022.

Adama Traore had become Barcelona ‘s mainstay on the right wing. Meanwhile, Luuk de Jong appears as a substitute more often.

The contribution of both of them last season was quite good. However, Barcelona are not 100 percent sure to make Luuk de Jong and Adama Traore permanent.

Until finally, El Barca decided to repatriate both of them in the summer of 2022.

“Adama and Luuk de Jong left FC Barcelona. Both players’ loan agreements expire on June 30 and they will report back to their respective teams.”

“Neither Adama Traore nor Luuk de Jong will continue at FC Barcelona. Both members of the senior squad have been at the club on loan until 30 June and will now return to their respective teams.”

“FC Barcelona would like to publicly thank both of them for their commitment and dedication and wish them luck and success in the future,” Barcelona said in a statement.

While at Barcelona, ​​Adama Traore was often played on the right wing. He played 17 times in all competitions.

Of those 17 matches, 11 of them were on the La Liga stage. The rest are in the Europa League.

However, he played 29 times for Barcelona in all competitions. 21 of them on the La Liga stage.

De Jong also had time to record seven goals plus one assist.
