Douglas join Turkish club Sivasspor on a loan deal

Barcelona have officially announced the departure of Brazilian fullback Douglas Pereira to Turkish club Sivasspor on a season-long loan deal.

Douglas signed for Barcelona in 2014, with the move deemed as one of the worst transfers in the history of the club by the club’s fanbase and experts, as the player was never thought to be a match for the club in terms of quality.

As foreseen, Douglas never managed to tie down a starting spot at the club. Even when he was available, Sergi Roberto was transformed into a right-back in the time of crisis on the right side of the defence.

Despite appearing for barely in 8 matches in 4 years with Barcelona’s first team, Douglas Pereira has accumulated 8 titles including a treble in 2015. Meanwhile, The 27-year-old doesn’t appear to fit in Ernesto Valverde’s plans for upcoming just like last season.
