Despite Aleix Vidal's secondary role in the last few games, the Catalan player is sure he wants to stay at Barça and try to be the starting right-back of the coming years. This is how his entourage put it in statements to Mundo Deportivo in which they say: "He will be starting for Barça for a long time."

The Catalan footballer wasn't part of the latest squad lists (in which Douglas took his place) and Luis Enrique said in the press conference: "my squad lists say what I think". It was a clear reference to the fact the Asturian coach is expecting more from Aleix Vidal in games and in training sessions, since there is the feeling that the player gave up a little seeing that Sergi Roberto was chosen over him as a right-back replacement.

However Aleix Vidal knows he wants to stay ar Barça and try to get a place in the starting eleven. The footballer has needed a season of adaptation in the club, in a similar situation to Arda Turan's.
