Carles Aleñá completes loan move to Getafe from Barcelona
Carles Aleñá will spend the second half of 2020-21 with Getafe after struggling to break into Barcelona's side under Ronald Koeman this season.
Barcelona midfielder Carles Aleñá has joined Getafe on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
The Barça academy product spent the second half of 2019-20 on loan with Real Betis and has struggled to establish himself under Ronald Koeman since returning ahead of this season.
Aleñá has made five appearances in LaLiga and the Champions League this term, just one of those coming from the start.
Koeman confirmed on Tuesday that Aleñá was close to departing Camp Nou on a temporary basis after Getafe president Angel Torres had revealed his side's interest.
Barça announced on their official website on Wednesday that the deal had gone through, with Getafe to pick up the player's wages in full until he returns to Catalonia.
Aleñá has played 43 times for Barcelona in total since making his first-team debut in the 2016-17 campaign.
Including his spell on loan with Betis last season, the 23-year-old has three goals and zero assists across 43 LaLiga outings, the first of those coming against Granada on April 2, 2017.
He may only have created one big chance for team-mates in that time, but the Spain Under-21s international ranks highly in terms of passes in the opposition half, averaging 47.45 per 90 minutes.
That places him behind only eight players who have featured at least 16 times across that period.
