Munir el Haddadi pushing for January loan move.
Barcelona wonderkid forward Munir El Haddadi is keen on leaving the Nou Camp on a loan deal in January with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea both interested in taking the young Spaniard, according to reports from the Express.
Munir was a regular feature in Luis Enrique’s first team at the Nou Camp at the start of the season in the absence of Luis Suarez following the Uruguayan’s biting ban, but he has become a more peripheral figure in recent weeks after the availability of Suarez and return to form of Pedro, meaning that the Catalans could consider loaning him out in January to get some much needed experience.
The report suggests that both Arsenal and Chelsea have been strongly linked with permanent moves for Munir in the past and could return to try and sign him on a loan deal, although with the attacking options at the disposal of Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger it is far from certain that he would be guaranteed the first team minutes he craves.
Rated as one of the brightest young talents in Spanish football, the Moroccan born youngster has already been capped by Vicente del Bosque’s La Roja after committing his international career to Spain.
