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.
