Barcelona has several players on their books, which has presented Xavi Hernandez with a selection headache at times, but it is not just the players in Camp Nou now who are an issue.
The Catalans sent several players out on loan at the start of this term, hoping they would get the playing time they wanted and probably earn moves away from the club.
But not everyone has been successful, and one struggling player’s future has already been decided by the Spanish giants.
The former Ajax man joined the Italians on loan at the start of this season after Barca decided he was surplus to requirements.
He is the highest earner in Milan, and the Italians were hopeful he would help them to retain their league crown at the end of this campaign.
However, that hasn’t happened, and he has not played for around three months, making it easy to predict he would be returned back to Barca.
The Catalans do not need Dest and must now find a new home for him. He would either leave permanently or go out on loan again, with Barca hopeful another loan spell would be successful.
