United States national team defender. There has been a steady stream of transfer news in the past few weeks. By being linked with big clubs, both Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Which the media say is ready to pull this right-back to dominate the winter market.
It also appears that Azulgrana is ready to let Dest go as well to clear the club’s wage bill and open up a way to register Ferran Torres into the squad.
Still, Mundo Deportivo reports Dest wants to stay at the Camp Nou. As the 21-year-old wants to prove his worth to Xavi and is ready to compete for a place in the squad.
For Dest, it’s been a tough season. Especially with injuries that have continued to frustrate the right-back. But the players are still determined to return to work to show the manager that he can be an important player.
Dest is yet to taste success in El Clasico as a player but is hoping to change that record on Sunday at the Camp Nou.
“I haven’t won a Clasico yet so hopefully we can do that Sunday. I want to win. Everybody wants to win, everyone knows it’s a really big game, the biggest of the year. Everyone is really sharp and it’s different. We approach the game differently.”
