Barcelona fullback Douglas resisting Cruzeiro approach

Barcelona fullback Douglas Pereira is resisting a return to Brazil.

Douglas is currently on-loan at Sporting Gijon, where he has managed three appearances this season.

Cruzeiro have sounded out Barca about taking over the loan in January.

However, Douglas is refusing to leave Spain as he has a long-term career plan.

The Brazilian wants to qualify for an EU passport - which he will be eligible for in 2019.
