A few weeks before the start of the new season, Barca is expected to release a number of players.

While the likes of Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong and Oscar Mingueza have dominated the headlines of late, Alex Collado is another player set to leave Camp Nou, albeit on a loan deal.

News delivered Mundo Deportivo said, Barça recently reached an agreement with Collado on the extension of his contract with the Catalan team that will last until 2024.

But Barcelona refuses to formalize the deal, for now. The club believe that a loan deal could be the right move for Collado in terms of his progression at Barca.

The former Sabadell youth player has joined Granada on loan for the second half of the 2021/22 season. But his hopes of breaking through to the Blaugrana’s first team look highly unlikely to be realised, especially after the Catalan side brought in several new players, including Pablo Torre, this summer.

Pedri and Gavi’s dazzling performances should not be taken lightly either, while Xavi also relied on another academy graduate, Nico Gonzalez.

According to Bara Universal, it puts Collado’s position on the edge, where Barcelona are now pushing him to become a loan player at another club. Thanks to the contract extension, Collado was able to manage without leaving the club at the end of this season.

Although the news does not mention who will be Alex Collado’s replacement, the Barcelona youngster should have no problems finding a new club that is right for him, as his game has grown tremendously and already a breakthrough in La League made.

In October 2021, when Barcelona was still under Ronald Koeman, Collado was the target of German club Bayer Leverkusen.

After being left out of Koeman’s plans at the club, Collado also failed to complete his transfer deal to English club Sheffield United last summer. As a result, he was completely unemployed at the Camp Nou, as Koeman had absolutely no interest in playing him.

An unclear future at Barcelona really made Collado want to leave his boyhood club. His own contract is still valid until 2023, but most likely he will not complete it.

Barca also apparently want to terminate Collado’s contract prematurely, after they failed to register the player in time for the first or second team. If Bayer Leverkusen really want to grab him – then, then Leverkusen will most likely be able to sign him on a free transfer.

Currently, Collado is an unregistered player, although he is allowed to train with his teammates at Camp Nou, while he waits for another club to be ready to sign him. If the player is permanent or on loan, he was already determined to leave Barça in January 2022.

Collade has actually been called up to the Barcelona main team since 2019. This season was probably the toughest season he has experienced since playing for the B team a year ago.

If you refer to his contract, then the 22-year-old striker should be a main team member. However, the Barca coach then refused and firmly stated that he did not want Collado to enter his squad.

Collado was brought in from Espanyol and first joined the Barca youth team. He actually looked great in pre-season, but still had to fight extra hard at Camp Nou before being loaned close to Club Brugge. Unfortunately, that plan failed miserably, and he remains at the Camp Nou to this day.

Shortly after his return to Barcelona, ​​​​and his club’s victory over Real Sociedad in their opening match, Koeman emphatically stated that he preferred Yusuf Demir’s game to Collado’s. He also almost left for Sheffield United but failed again.

Last year, not only Bayer Leverkusen wanted his services, but AC Milan and Sheffield United were also reportedly watching him. These three clubs both wanted to sign Collado in the January 2022 transfer window, although none of them came true.
