As Barcelona are unable to register any new players until January 2016 owing to the sanction imposed by FIFA, and given that it is difficult to find more players who, like Aleix Vidal, do not mind not playing until next year, for the summer transfer window they will have to look at those players who have been out on loan over the recently-finished season. Unlike new signings, the club is allowed to register these players at the beginning of the new campaign.

This is where Denis Suárez steps into the frame. The Galician player, who went on a two-year loan deal to Sevilla last summer, figures in Luis Enrique‘s plans for next season and Bartomeu had already begun making the necessary contacts for the return of the player before announcing his resignation a few days ago, according to ‘Marca’.

Another loanee, and at Sevilla as well, is Gerard Deulofeu, a player who seemed destined to become an idol at the Camp Nou but who has not had much of a lead part at the Sánchez Pizjúan, where he has only had 15 starts. Luis Enrique is not exactly one of his admirers. The culé coach was not overly impressed by the player’s poor commitment to defensive duties last season so it seems unlikely that the academy product will return to the Camp Nou this summer.

Another academy product who is far away is Cristian Tello. The winger has had opportunities to play at Porto and managed eight goals between the Portuguese league and the Champions League, but it also seems unlikely he will be back in the immediate furture owing to the attacking resources that Luis Enrique already has available at Barça.

Also loaned out are Alex Song and Ibrahim Afellay, at West Ham and Olympiacos respectively, neither of whom were able to settle in Barcelona. Both end their contract this season and it does not appear likely that the club has any intention of offering them a new deal.
