FC Barcelona youngster Juan Miranda has already given the green light to the next step in his career. According to German newspaper 'Bild', Miranda has said 'yes' to a two-year loan deal to join Bundesliga side Schalke 04. Following the arrival of Junior Firpo, it basically closed the door to a first-team spot at the Camp Nou for the La Masia graduate.
The two sides still need to iron out one or two details but a move could be announced imminently. He'll sign for two seasons, without an option to make it permanent, but an agreement could be extended for a further season should both sides be open to that possibility.
Miranda wasn't selected for Barça B by Garcia Pimienta for their season opener against Badalona which suggests a deal is very close to completion.
