Barcelona defender Marc Muniesa has been recommended to Ajax by Johan Cruyff, with the Dutch club also eyeing up moves for several of Barca's other young stars.

The man who enjoys legendary status at both clubs for his achievements with them as player and manager has advised Ajax's new sporting director Marc Overmars to sign versatile B team defender Muniesa, according to Spanish sports daily Marca.

The 20-year-old has only made four appearances for the first team since making his first in 2009, although he was named as an unused substitute for the Champions League final that year.

Overmars, who also played for both Ajax and Barca, is also weighing up making offers for attacking trio Isaac Cuenca, Cristian Tello and Gerard Deulofeu.

One of the first jobs of new Barcelona head coach Tito Vilanova is to decide which of the young prospects in the B team and on the fringes of the first-team squad he is to accommodate in the senior side.
