Abstract: Several Barcelona players have been playing their football away from the Camp Nou on loan in recent seasons and the club could be about to open the exit door to let them leave.



Several Barcelona players have been playing their football away from the Camp Nou on loan in recent seasons and the club could be about to open the exit door to let them leave.


Last summer saw various players depart the club, with Dani Alves most notably leaving for Juventus and enjoying instant success, while Sandro Ramirez switched to Malaga and scored plenty of goals.


But, most importantly for a club with a rich history of producing high quality youth players thanks to La Masia, the two players who looked set for a promising career at the Camp Nou, Sergi Samper and Munir El Haddadi, have had lacklustre seasons.


The goal would be to bring both players back and to have them contribute to the team, but it is more likely for Samper to play for another mid-table LaLiga side in a bid to receive substantial playing time after playing under various coaches at Granada.


For Munir, it is evident that the striker has an abundance of individual quality, but a difficult season in a struggling Valencia side may see the player move elsewhere, with a buy-back option sure to be implemented.


Elsewhere, Thomas Vermaelen could see the exit door as the Belgian will most likely see his contract terminated despite being 2019.


The defender spent last season on-loan at AS Roma and it looks unlikely he will return to Catalonia.


Douglas spent his season at relegated Sporting Gijon and will continue to play in Europe as he seeks dual nationality, but he also won't be playing with Barcelona, similarly to Christian Tello who has been at Fiorentina and could leave for less than 10 million euros.


Depending on how much the club makes from potential sales of Arda Turan and Jeremy Matheiu, Brazilian midfielder Rafinha could also be open to offers as the player searches for minutes on the field ahead of the World Cup.
