Barcelona brought in Romeu from Girona last summer to act as Sergio Busquets’ short-term replacement on a tight recruitment budget. But the 32-year-old midfielder only performed well in the first period. Before being dropped from his starting position and being linked with a move away from the club in January. 

According to reports, Romeu submitted a transfer request in this transfer window after being approached by Besiktas. But did not receive a response from the club. Due to the current situation, Barcelona is facing the problem of several player injuries at the same time. Therefore, the Azulgrana team is not in a position to let the 32-year-old midfielder move.

Meanwhile, choosing to release Romeu to another team in January will only help Barcelona unlock the salary cap a little. Which is not enough to sign new replacement players. The club have therefore chosen to retain the 32-year-old midfielder. As an emergency replacement before deciding on his future again in the summer.
