The Brazilian left on loan to Sporting Gijón
Douglas Pereira has not been good business for Barcelona. At least for now. He arrived two seasons ago from Sao Paulo. Barcelona paid 5,5 million euros and he hasn't performed this two last seasons under Luis Enrique. He made his debut in Malaga. It wasn't good. Then the injuries came... and Luis Ernique hasn't been calling him up regularly.
This season the Brazilian full-back will play for Sporting Gijon on loan. However, Barcelona will pay for his wages.
Two years without playing
Douglas has won it all with Barcelona. Two La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey, one Champions League, a Club World Cup title, one European Supercup and another Spanish Supercup. However, he has only played 8 matches as a Barcelona player. And only three of them were 'real' La Liga or Copa del Rey matches.
