Barcelona confirmed on Friday that left-back Juan Miranda has joined Schalke on a two-year loan.

The 19-year-old was expected to depart in the summer transfer window after the arrival of Junior Firpo as back-up to Jordi Alba.

The teenager will now get the chance to impress in the Bundesliga and will wear the No. 3 shirt at Schalke.

The deal does not include an option to buy and allows Barcelona to recall him next summer should they desire.

Schalke manager David Wagner is pretty excited by the arrival of the Spanish teenager.

“It’s amazing that we’ve signed him. We will give him the time to adjust to life here in Germany so that he can reach his full sporting potential here.”
