Abelardo wants to repeat the successful loan of Halilovic with the Catalan player
Abelardo was very pleased with the loan of Halilović to Sporting and the midfielder has been able to grow without Barça's demand. El Molinon welcomed Halilović with much affection and has become one of the idols of the fans. Now the midfielder wants to continue progressing and has already been linked to an important club like Valencia.
Given the success, Sporting coach Abelardo is now studying the possibility to request a new loan next season: the midfielder Sergi Samper, who has alternated Barça B with some appearances in the first team. According to Sport, the Asturian club is already trying to get the player.
Aged 21, Samper will not stay at Barça B, as he needs to have minutes of competition, which is very complicated in the firs team: Sergio Busquets is the permanent starter in the defensive midfield and Sergi Roberto has provided a high level in this position this season. So Samper need a way out if he wants to enjoy opportunities to grow as a player.
Sporting, which will stay in first division, can be a good destination for Samper to play as starter and keep evolving. Now it's time to know the opinion of the footballer and if he would like to test a different league.
