One of the most talked-about moves of the summer was the arrival of Oriol Romeu to Barcelona. This was a rumor that had been circulating for some time, and it eventually came to fruition. In this way, the midfielder left Girona and joined the Catalan club as a strategy that seemed to be quite successful.
The thing is that over time things don’t seem to have gone as well as planned. Romeu’s level has not been as expected, and the fans have not been slow to criticize. This has led to speculation that the player’s return to his former club will happen soon.
Cárcel wants him back
Rumors have been coming and going, but recently the Girona sporting director has spoken about it. And it is that according to comments from Diaridegirona, Quique Cárcel has assured that he is willing to have Romeu back in the squad. In fact, he has declared that he believes it is an agreement that would not be unfeasible.
That it is not unfeasible does not mean that it will happen, but it does not mean that it is impossible either. It seems that Xavi’s team is not entirely convinced of the midfielder’s permanence, so it would not be strange that they try to let him go. But to do so, they must first finalize other arrivals.
It won’t be easy
This return will be somewhat complex, the contract that links Romeu to the Catalan club runs until 2026, which will undoubtedly create problems. But under the right conditions it is possible. Much has been said that Barcelona would be looking for a new midfielder, and if so, Romeu’s return would be easier, but nothing is clear yet.
