Gerard Deulofeu’s cracking equaliser for Everton at Arsenal on Sunday feels like a seminal moment in the career of one of the most hyped and gifted youngsters to emerge from Barcelona in recent years.
A big goal against the Premier League leaders in the big Sunday afternoon match was watched by millions across the globe and the Catalan press are very excited about Deulofeu.
On Monday, Deulofeu gave an interview to Catalan radio station RAC1 to which the former Barcelona B striker confirmed he expects to return to the Nou Camp for next season.
Deulofeu: “Barça is not know, I am just thinking about this season. I’m happy at Everton. Now I’m here for a year, then I’m a Barca player. I want to enjoy this experience.”
The 19-year-old also praised Roberto Martinez for “giving me the confidence and I’m very happy.”
