Barcelona are in talks with Ajax over a partnership agreement.

Negotiations have progressed positively, says El Mundo Deportivo, though no final decision will be made until the end of the Spanish Liga season.

The deal would see Barca exchange coaching staff, players and medical services with Ajax and would see their brightest young players loaned to the Dutch club to gain senior experience.

Bojan Krkic, Giovani dos Santos and Marco Crosas could all start next season in an Ajax shirt. The Dutch club's football chief, Martin van Geel, has also expressed interest in senior players Santi Ezquerro and Thiago Motta.
