Barcelona chief Kluivert admits Riqui Puig to leave on-loan

Barcelona sporting director Patrick Kluivert admits Riqui Puig is set to leave on-loan.

Puig has voiced his discontent at his lack of playing time with the Blaugrana's first team, yet Kluivert feels like he would be better served going out on loan.

"If you see the midfielders in the first team already - Frenkie [de Jong], Arturo [Vidal], etc - where are you going to put Riqui?" Kluivert responded.

"With all respect, it is difficult.

"It's better for Riqui to go out on loan to play at a different level and then he can return."
