Gerard Deulofeu has been surprised by his brilliant start to life at AC Milan but Barcelona will determine whether he stays there permanently, his agent says.

“So far nobody from Barcelona has contacted us, but clearly his future does depend on what they want because they do have this option,” Gines Carvajal, Deulofeu’s representative, told Calciomercato.

“His partner is staying in Barcelona – she is pregnant and can’t really travel at the moment, so their daughter will be born in Barcelona.

“But I wouldn’t be so sure that [re-joining Barcelona] is going to happen.”

The winger joined Milan on loan from Everton until the end of the season in January and he scored his first goal for the club in last week’s 2-1 win over Fiorentina, capping a fine start to his Serie A career.
