Barcelona is facing a challenging time in trying to reduce its wage bill and generate revenue by offloading some of its players. The club has made it clear that they need to sell players before they can register new ones. The management team has been working to close deals to sell players who have been getting fewer minutes on the pitch.
However, Barcelona is facing some difficulties in executing its plan. Some players are not willing to leave the club, and reasonable offers are not being received for others. The club is looking to lighten its wage bill by quickly selling players before the end of June, and this is becoming increasingly difficult.
Barcelona ready to sell four superstars
According to Diario Sport, the list of players that Barcelona is willing to sell is becoming clearer, and it includes Ferran Torres, Jordi Alba, Ansu Fati, and Kessié. If the first sales do not go through, the club may have to consider selling other players such as Eric Garcia or Raphina.
Barcelona is considering loan deals as well to generate revenue quickly. Lenglet is expected to move to Tottenham Hotspurs on a permanent basis, and Umtiti has several proposals from Italian clubs. Nico could opt for a transfer, while the Abde case is still under consideration.
However, the situation with Ferran, Kessié, Alba, and Ansu is complicated. None of them wants to leave Barcelona, and they have communicated this to the club. Barcelona is exploring their options, but it is not until after they win the League title that they will speak directly with the players. The Ansu case could be the most profitable, while Ferran could enter into an operation or go out on loan. Kessié, who is keen to succeed at Camp Nou, could be involved in an exchange deal, and the club is looking to save some of Alba’s market value.
The club’s feasibility plan presented to La Liga involves several player exits with transfer deals. The club is eager to generate revenue quickly, and the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, has made it clear that Barça must let players go before they can register new ones. The sports area is considering several options, including the sale of Raphinha to some of the Premier League clubs.
