Unbeaten in the Spanish League, Chelsea soon to come in the UEFA Champions League, and a Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on the way, Ernesto Valverde's Barcelona is undoubtedly one of the strongest teams on the European continent.
They are practically set to win the Spanish league title and are also strong favourites for the Champions League and the Copa del Rey titles, they are headed for a possible treble.
In the summer of 2017, the former Bilbao man was put in charge of a 'struggling' team after a turbulent last season under Luis Enrique. He has undoubtedly done a brilliant job so far.
Additionally, the gaffer has reintroduced several players including the likes of Jordi Alba, Ivan Rakitic and Andre Gomes, all of whom were outcasts under Lucho. They massively under performed under the former manager.
However, things don't seem to be working too well for a number of players as their time on the pitch has been severely limited this term. Let's take a look at five players who are likely to be loaned out in search of starting berths.
#5 Denis Suarez
Denis Suarez's inability to step up in big games and crunch situations gives birth to a complicated situation for the young midfielder. Originally from the Barcelona youth system, Denis returned to Barcelona after a successful season with Villarreal.
Still, in his early years, Suarez's development is being impaired by the overcrowding in Barcelona's midfield. His dreams to be successful at the Nou Camp and Valverde's faith in the midfielder rule out possibilities of a transfer to a large extent.
However, a loan deal could be possible in the interest of both club and player. Suarez has been left out of the squad on countless occasions by Ernesto Valverde. Injured in the Catalan Super Cup after making it into the first team for the first time since January, Suarez's progress in Valverde's pecking order has slowed down even further.
Denis Suarez could follow fellow midfielders Rafinha and Arda Turan out on loan in search of much needed game time. Several clubs including the likes of Manchester City have shown interest in the Barcelona number 6.
