Barcelona youngsters Ilaix Moriba and Juan Miranda both headed back to Barcelona B for training on Monday.
The duo have been with the first team but it looks as though Ronald Koeman has decided they would be better off with Francisco Javier García Pimienta’s side.
It’s not too much of a surprise to see Ilaix return, given his young age and lack of experience, but Miranda would have been hoping for first-team football in 2020-21.

The first team did not train until late afternoon on Monday. The main news is that Miralem Pjanic and Jean-Clair Todibo continue to train alone and have not rejoined the main group yet.
There’s also an injury blow for Matheus Fernandes. The midfielder has been ruled out for the foreseeable future with a hamstrin strain.
