Vlasic resigned to Everton exit: They buy Barcelona players now!

Everton star Nikola Vlasic believes that he will be leaving the club in the summer.

The 21-year-old is on loan at CSKA Moscow for the remainder of this campaign.

And he does not see his long term future at Merseyside, given the ambitions of the team.

"Honestly, I do not believe," Vlasic told Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti when asked if he could come back into the team next season.

"Everton paid about £90m on only three players - Richarlison, (Yerry) Mina and (Lucas) Digne - and are therefore looking for great names and players from big clubs, like Barcelona.

"Despite these immense investments the team is currently in the 11th place, which means there will be new, big purchases.

"When you bring three players out of Barcelona in a few days (Mina, Digne and on-loan Andre Gomes) then it's clear that you do not have much care for those who came from the small league.

"So I expect them to sell me as soon as they get their first bid."
