Bundesliga side FC Schalke 04 has announced defender Juan Miranda will return to Barcelona with immediate effect following the termination of his loan deal.
Miranda had signed a two-year loan deal with the German side and was meant to stay in Gelsenkirchen until June 30, 2021.
“We would like to thank Juan for his efforts this season. We wish him all the best for the future,” said Head of Sport Jochen Schneider.
“We would also like to thank FC Barcelona for the mutually agreed decision and the positive cooperation with our club.”
Miranda played 11 times in the Bundesliga in 2019/20, also appearing once in the DFB-Pokal.
Juan Miranda joined Barça in 2014 from Betis and he progressed through the youth teams reaching Barça B and made his debut for the first team in the 2018/19 season.
That debut came on October 31, 2018 in the Copa del Rey at Cultural Leonesa. Miranda also featured in a Champions League game against Tottenham Hotspur and was included in the first team squad for league games on several occasions.
