It is very clear Luis Enrique is not counting in any way on Douglas Pereira. The Asturian coach even left him more holidays so he can find an exit. Actually, Barça had received an offer from Cruzeiro with which they were satisfied. The Brazilian club offered 2 million Euros for the 60% of the player's rights, but Douglas said no.

The offer of the Brazilian club was valid until the 20th of july, and the full-back didn't want to accept although he knows he won't get any game time in Barcelona. He has one year of contract left and one of the explanations would be that the player wants to stay to get the communitary passport. The club will keep working in the coming days to find a solution to the Douglas case.
