The La Masía graduate, Carles Aleñá has proposals to leave on loan both inside and outside of Spain, given the lack of playing time, the midfielder is considering the option and tomorrow may be a key day according to reports.

Spanish midfielder Carles Aleñá has played a total of 172 minutes taking into account LaLiga and Champions League. Ronald Koeman’s message to the 22-year-old is that he does not count on him and that despite Philippe Coutinho’s long injury he will not have minutes for the remainder of the season either, so both the club and the player seriously consider the option of a loan spell.

According to Catalunya Radio, the most advanced option is a loan to Getafe until the end of the season, where he could meet up with his friend from La Masía, Marc Cucurella. Due to the situation that he lives in Barcelona, ​​Aleñá considers leaving the club of his life. This afternoon, according to the same media outlet, there was a meeting between both clubs to negotiate the future of the young player and tomorrow the Madrid club will have to confirm whether to accept the economic part of the agreement to continue the negotiations.

On the other hand, Helena Condis of Cadena COPE informs that tomorrow the agreement will be closed for the loan of Aleñá to Getafe with José Bordalás. The Spanish coach has asked for him because he knows the player and Bordalás has also been the one who has convinced him.

However, Getafe is not the only club interested in Carles Aleñá. According to ESPN’s Moi Llorens, in Italy, they have also considered the loan option for the midfielder for a long time and in Spain, another LaLiga team has offered for the young Spaniard even though Getafe has him on track.

Since his debut in 2016 with the first team, Aleñá has not found the playing time that he would like to demonstrate what he already demonstrated at Barça B. Among so many circumstances similar to the current ones, he also left on loan in January 2020 to Real Betis, a movement that was not favourable either due to the situation of the Seville club.

The future of Carles Aleñá is currently up in the air but due to the lack of minutes and Koeman’s lack of confidence, his departure from the club is getting closer and closer.
