Barcelona are considering the futures of Riqui Puig, Juan Miranda and Oriol Busquets and could send the youngsters on loan to Ajax next season to gain valuable playing time.

According to Catalunya Radio, the trio and also Jean-Clair Todibo could all be used as part of a plan to bring Matthijs de Ligt to the Camp Nou.

Barca have already spoken to the players about the possibility of joining the Dutch side.

Puig and Busquets are said to be thinking about it, while Miranda is reportedly the most reluctant.

Barcelona’s problem seems to be that they want the players to be playing regularly at the highest level but can’t see them getting that much action at the Camp Nou next season.

The club have a pretty good relationship with Ajax and would be happy for the youngsters to continue their development on a temporary basis in the Netherlands.

Would loaning the trio to Ajax for the season be a good idea? Or should they stay at Barcelona? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
