Barcelona have decided to loan out teenage midfielder Alen Halilovic once again next season, according to the player’s agent.
Halilovic, the Croatia international playmaker, has excelled on loan at La Liga minnows Sporting Gijon this season.
Despite his impressive form at Sporting, Barca do not feel that the 19-year-old is ready to form part of their first-team plans yet, while they do not plan to sell him to another club with the option to buy him back.
Speaking to Cope Asturias, Halilovic’s agent Zoran Stojadinovic said:
“In no moment have Barcelona considered selling Alen because they believe in him and what they have opted for is to loan him out for another year.” o
