The 2014/15 season could be an interesting one for a number of Barcelona players.
Those on the periphery or those that just can't seem to remove those ahead of them in the pecking order, have decisions to make.

Or go out on loan elsewhere to build up the experience required to then make their inclusion nothing more than a formality?
For one or two in this list, the next few months are vital to their development as footballers, one wrong decision could be the difference between a career at the very highest level or the lower reaches of the football pyramid.
Let's take a look at who is likely to go out on loan this season.
