He's not having many minutes and could study a loan option
Marc Bartra is still without making the step forward and stablish himself as one of the important players for Luis Enrique. It happened the same with his previous manages: Guardiola, Vilanova and Tata Martino. So the centre-back could end up taking his luggage somewhere else and finding a new team this January, according to Mundo Deportivo and Sport.
The 24-year-old is the 16th player with more minuts of the squad. Not a great mark. With Luis Enrique he only started 8 of the 28 matches this season. Moreover, this December he only performed against Villanovense and Bayer Leverkusen. He didn't play a single minute in the league or the Club's World Cup. Mathieu and Vermaelen had more minutes than him in those competitions.
One of the options Bartra could take profit is if Celta de Vigo finally accept to sell Nolito to Barcelona. Bartra could be included in the operation.
There's also been rumours about a move to Seville, as their centre-back Andreolli suffered an injury that will keep him without playing until June.
During last weeks, Bartra changed his agent. Former Barcelona legend and captain Carles Puyol is now in charge of his operations.
