Miranda does not renew for Schalke 04 and returns to Barça

The German Schalke 04 has decided not to give effect to the clause it had to extend the transfer of left-back Juan Miranda one more year, so the player from Barcelona will return to the discipline of the Catalan entity in the coming days.

Now the future of the Andalusian defender remains to be seen. At first, in the club does not contemplate its continuity, so they will seek a new outlet, possibly in the form of an assignment. It is not ruled out, in any case, that Miranda, who ends his contract with Barcelona on June 30, 2021, leaves the club permanently if an interesting offer is received, as happened a few days ago with Marc Cucurella, bought by Getafe for ten million euros.

The truth is that his time in the Bundesliga can be considered unsatisfactory, since he barely played eleven games with Schalke 04, accounting for a total of 781 minutes. The truth is injuries have been a 'handicap' for the young defender.

He also debuted in the Champions League playing the last game of the group against Tottenham and accumulated a total of four calls in LaLiga.
