Rumors about FC Barcelona’s Douglas Pereira moving to Sporting Gijon on loan in the January transfer window was all over the place but the club have put away the idea. Sporting Director of Sporting Gijon Nico Rodriguez explainned that the restrictions imposed on the club by LFP have left them with no choice of signing. “We do not think its possible or visible.”- the sporting director said.
The limitation imposed on Sporting Gijon is that the club will be guided by very strict rules to sign players this winter transfer. The club will not be allowed to acquire more than two players and the two players in question must be under 23 years old, with no top experience in leagues like the La Liga BBVA or any Primera league
Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez traveled to Gijon to monitor Barca’s Halilovic (on loan to Sporting Gijon) where they defeated Real Sociedad 5–1, he seized the opportunity to negotiate the potential loan of Douglas.
