Barcelona teammates accept Deulofeu must leave

Gerard Deulofeu is ready to leave Barcelona in January.

The winger only signed permanently from Everton over the summer, but is now seeing his World Cup chances quickly evaporating as he falls off Barca's first team map.

El Confidencial says Barca teammates accept Deulofeu has to leave next month to rescue his Spain hopes - particularly with Ousmane Dembele due to be fully fit when the players return after the winter recess.

A move to Italy, where Deulofeu enjoyed career best form with AC Milan, has been mooted.

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is a fan and his system, which relies on wingers, would suit Deulofeu as he battles to get his career back on the rails.
