Barcelona aim to use loan players in swap talks

Barcelona are planning to use fringe players to negotiate player exchanges with rival clubs this summer.

Barca must lean on swap talks with their available transfer cash limited due to the coronavirus shutdown.

Catalunya Radio says management recognise they have several valuable assets available to use in talks for particular targets.

Jean-Clair Todibo, on-loan with Schalke, could be used as a makeweight, along with Philippe Coutinho, currently with Bayern Munich.

Rafinha and Moussa Wagué, loaned to Celta de Vigo and OGC Nice respectively this season, also could come into the equation as Barca seek to push their summer budget to the limit.
