Romeu could snub Barca return
Oriel Romeu's agent says the Chelsea midfielder is in no hurry to emulate Cesc Fabregas by leaving the Premier League in order to return to Barcelona.
Romeu, 20, quit the Catalan giants in the summer and has impressed at the base of midfield for his new team, making nine appearances in the Premier League this season.
However, it is believed that Barcelona have an option to re-sign Romeu in the summer of 2012 for £8.3 million, or £12.5m in 2013 - although Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas insists that clause can only be activated if his club want to sell the youngster.
And, according to Romeu's agent Javier Magico Diaz, it is not a forgone conclusion that Romeu will be desperate to head back to Barcelona.
"Will Romeu return? His dream before leaving was to be a Barcelona player and that still stands, but we cannot ignore the opportunity Chelsea have provided," Magico Diaz said to Marca.
"Oriol has made a name for himself in the Premier League and is playing regularly. We're committed to the club and we cannot leave them hanging."
He added on a possible Barcelona return: "We'll have to see if it's appropriate for the club and the player. We need to know if he'll keep developing at Chelsea and playing. Maybe it will be more convenient to stay for another year and then return in 2013."
