On loan from Barcelona, Sergino Dest has joined defending Serie A champions AC Milan.

The American will initially reside in San Siro until the conclusion of the 2022–23 season, with the Rossoneri having acquired an option to purchase as part of the transfer.

Dest, 21, was also courting interest from La Liga team Villarreal. Dest had been linked with a move to Manchester United to reunite with former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag.

However, he has now relocated to Milan, who are for the first time in ten years defending their Serie A championship from last season.

Dest is the latest player to be released during Camp Nou’s incredible summer of transfer activity, even if a large portion of the commotion and controversy surrounding Barcelona’s transactions has really been their way of acquiring players.

In order to fund transfers, President Joan Laporta has used a number of “economic levers,” essentially selling off assets like television rights. This has allowed the club to sign players like Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde, and Raphinha, among others, all the while trying to get the highest-paid players to accept pay cuts.

Dest, a USMNT player, didn’t make a lot of money but wasn’t expected to play much under Xavi this year. A deal to sign Hector Bellerin exists, in fact it is close to been announced.
