Barcelona to disband the team in the summer

After the elimination from the semi-finals of the Champions League, the management of the Catalan club plans to get rid of a number of players.

According to the information of the Spanish newspapers, about ten players will leave the club in the summer. The first candidates for the exit were Jeison Murillo, as well as Kevin-Prince Boateng. Murillo will return from loan to his native Valencia, and Boateng is waiting for the next season in Italian Sassuolo. A similar fate also awaits Thomas Vermaelen, who for all his time at Camp Nou did not gain a foothold in the first team due to permanent injuries.

Barcelona are also going to put up for sale the second goalkeeper of the team Jasper Sillesssen. The Dutch keeper does not receive proper match practice and this does not suit him. Therefore, in the summer the goalkeeper will most likely go to another club, and Blaugranas will try to bargain for him for about 30 million euros.

In addition to Sillessen, Barcelona are also looking for options to sell Phillipe Coutinho. The Brazilian moved in the winter transfer window of 2018 from Liverpool for 160 million euros. However, after that, the Merseysiders reached the Champions League final twice, and the Brazilian was content with just playing in the quarterfinals and semi-finals. Initially, the midfielder was intended to be a replacement for Andres Iniesta, but after a while the player did not adapt to the game of the Catalan club.

After an unsuccessful European Cup campaign, Barcelona agrees to sell Fillipe for 100 million euros, if there are buyers for it. A similar situation is with Malcom, which will be given away for 35 million euros.

Rafinha and Rakitic can leave from the midfield, who were wooed in Milan Inter. London Arsenal are not going to buy Denis Suarez, so he is likely to return to Catalonia, where he will be sold.

The final point in the transfer plans of the champions of Spain was Samuel Umtiti. The Frenchman has not played this season at his level, so Barca are going to sell him, and take de Ligt from Ajax, who has spent this season at the highest level.

Thus, after the summer transfer window Barcelona can be left without ten players in the roster. In addition, the Catalans can say goodbye to Ernesto Valverde soon, who for the second season in a row lost the advantage of three goals in the second matches of the Champions League playoffs. Barca are waiting for total restructuring, which promises them the fate of Real Madrid, but despite the similarity, Blaugranas will keep the Argentine leader, capable of winning the championship single-handedly.
