Barcelona are likely to seek to loan out teenage striker Bojan Krkic in January.

The Spain U17 star is back in training at Barca after returning from the World Cup this week. Barca coach Frank Rijkaard has a limit of fielding Krkic in five games before the winter market opens in order to keep him eligible to join another Spanish Liga club.

While there has been comments from the Krkic camp that Barca regard Giovani dos Santos as more valuable, it's emerged that the Spaniard's buyout clause is twice as big as the Mexican's. Any interested club would have to fork out £40 million to prise Krkic away from Barca.
