thumbnail Hello,

The 24-year-old may finally move to a club where he's able to get more playing time, says a report in a Spanish newspaper.

Mexican midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos could be heading out the exit door of Barcelona this summer, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

The 24-year-old has struggled for playing time with the Catalan club, starting only three games in La Liga since arriving at La Masia in 2002.

Dos Santos was close to a move to Real Sociedad last summer but was convinced to stay and fight for a place at the club by incoming coach Gerardo Martino.

But just as it looked like Dos Santos would be leaving in the winter transfer window, the Mexico international suffered an ACL injury to his right knee and was out for six months.

The player is currently training on the margins of the Barcelona squad, but isn’t giving up on a World Cup place.

“I’m raising my hand to see is they give me that opportunity to be in the World Cup,” Dos Santos told Televisa last week.

The same article in Sport suggests Dos Santos’ contract ends in 2015 and that Ibrahim Afellay, Cristian Tello, Isaac Cuena, Sergi Roberto and Oier Olazabal are also set to leave the club.
