Montoya is out of contract at the end of the season, but his representative says that he wants to leave next month.

The Spaniard has made just one appearance for the club in all competitions this season.

"Tomorrow there will be a meeting with Barcelona to communicate the decision we have already made," he agent, Juan De Dios Carrasco said yesterday.

"He will leave the club in January. There are clubs interested from England, Italy and German.

"When a player wants to leave Barca, as Montoya does, I do not think the club will oppose his departure."
