Barcelona are willing to let Carles Alena decide his future at the club over Christmas amid interest from Real Betis and Getafe, according to the latest reports.

Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona would be happy for him to stay for the rest of the season but will understand if he does look to move away to play more regularly.

Alena is “almost convinced” he will leave, after struggling for game time this season, even though he has featured in the last few matches.

If he does depart then it looks as though Real Betis is his most likely destination. Alena thinks they’d be the best option and has definitely ruled out leaving Spain.
